According to state data, drug price hikes in Minnesota about $110 Billion annually. That’s equal to 4x Minnesota’s state spending. Big prescription drug companies are making billions while charging those in need the highest prices. No Minnesotan should be forced to make the difficult decisions between paying for life-saving medications and buying food. It’s time to stop Rx greed!
