In legislative committee, District 12A State Representative Jeff Backer heard information about a bill to control prescription drug prices. Backer told KMRS that while it “sounds good” to say that an increase in a drug’s price by 15 percent in a single year is “too high,” Backer noted that there could be complicated reasons for a drug’s price and it was wrong to focus on only the price.

Attorney General Keith Ellison answered question on the bill before legislators, but Backer said he was disappointed by the lack of detail in Ellison’s answers.
