Governor Sununu Statement Following Senate Vote on SB 687

Concord, NH – Today, Governor Chris Sununu issued the following statement after the Senate voted to pass SB 687, an act relative to transparency in prescription drug pricing and establishing a New Hampshire prescription drug affordability board:

"This bill will create a drug affordability board in New Hampshire to monitor changes in the cost of prescription drugs to keep the industry honest and to keep an eye on prices to prevent price spikes," said Governor Chris Sununu. "Often, many of the challenges in health care can start to be addressed through greater transparency in pricing. That transparency brings scrutiny and accountability as to why the cost of a particular drug is high or higher than similar drugs. I look forward to signing this bill into law."
