Grassley on Growing Support for the Prescription Drug Pricing Reduction Act

Prepared Floor Remarks by U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa
Chairman, Senate Finance Committee
Tuesday, February 11, 2020
Yesterday, Senator Martha McSally announced her support for the bipartisan Prescription Drug Pricing Reduction Act.
Senator McSally and I worked together on several parts of the bill. Arizonans should know that Senator McSally’s leadership is making all the difference in moving this bill forward.
President Trump, Vice President Pence and nearly a dozen Senate Republicans have so far endorsed this bill. Several other Senate Republicans will soon announce their support as well. I expect to introduce an updated version in the coming weeks.

I’m confident that if this bill were brought up for a vote, it would pass overwhelmingly. Let’s not miss an opportunity to deliver real progress for Americans.
