Springfield, Ill. – AARP Illinois issued the following statement Wednesday calling for an up-or-down vote soon in the Illinois Senate on HB 4900, which could push Illinois to the forefront of national efforts to rein in surprise price gouging that can lead to massive increases in the cost of specific prescription drugs.
The Illinois General Assembly and Governor Rauner will now have to now work through June on a budget solution -- with no certainty that they will pass by the end of the fiscal year, June 30.
Moving forward with our Enough is Enough campaign mobilizing citizens across Illinois and encouraging them to hold elected officials – the Governor and the members of the General Assembly – accountable for the gridlock and demand they find long-term solutions and pass a budget that restores the fiscal health of our state.
