PoliticsOhio: Issue 2 And The Media Battle Over Prescription Drug Prices

Oct 24, 2017

As Election Day nears, advocates continue to lobby for and against a ballot measure that would limit how much Ohio could pay for prescription drugs. After months of political ads on both sides, some voters are confused about how the passage of Issue 2 could affect their health-care budgets.

For more details about the proposal, WYSO's Jerry Kenney spoke with the Ohio Public Radio Statehouse News Bureau’s Andy Chow. Chow says if passed, Issue 2 would tie the cost of prescription drugs purchased by state agencies to the price paid by the Veterans Administration.
