Drug Database Could Get State Funding

Jun 1, 2015

A House budget bill would allow tax dollars to be used next year to administer the state's prescription-drug database, after years of debate about the issue.

The proposal, which would be in effect only for the 2015-16 fiscal year, is included in what is known as a budget "implementing" bill (HB 3A). That bill, along with the overall budget, will be considered during a special legislative session that starts Monday.
