ACT NO. 51


Prescription Drug Prices

This act authorizes the Legislative Health Access Oversight Committee to analyze options for securing the lowest possible prescription drug prices for Vermont consumers. The study will include consideration of a regulatory structure to set maximum prices and a purchasing pool to lower prices by increasing the purchasing power of Vermonters. The Committee is authorized to contract for expert services, and is directed to report back to the General Assembly before the 2000 session with its recommendations.

Effective Date: July 1, 1999
