Affordable Prescription Drugs

Prescription drug legislation could be the topic of discussion in the Senate next week. Senator Edward Kennedy is preparing a bill that would make generic drugs more widely available. It is an effort to stop drug companies from extending their lucrative patents and allow the generics to come in and make popular prescriptions more affordable.

The house okayed its version of the drug legislation last month.
