PRESCRIPTION DRUG COSTS
Making it easier for patients to access and afford the critical medication they need to maintain their quality of life has been a top priority for Kevin Mullin as Assembly Speaker pro Tem. In Sacramento, he wrote and passed the law that cut red tape and lowered costs by allowing medical assistants to manage prescription medication sales to patients, and improving care and reducing wait times at community clinics.
He helped win approval for the landmark law that made California the first state in the nation to produce its own generic prescription drugs, saving patients hundreds of millions of dollars, and stood up to the drug companies by passing a drug pricing transparency law.
In Congress, Kevin will be laser-focused on real progressive solutions to bring down the costs of prescription drugs for all Americans and allow Medicare to negotiate prices directly with drug manufacturers, while also acknowledging the important role the life sciences play in our innovation economy and job creation in CA-15 and throughout California.
