AFP-VA Praises Youngkin for Vetoing Prescription Drug Affordability Board

Apr 15, 2024 by AFP

Richmond, VA – Last week, Gov. Youngkin vetoed SB 274, legislation that would have created a state board charged with setting upper payment limits on the cost of medicines for residents who are covered by a state or local government agency or a commercial health plan.

Matt Davison, Acting State Director for Americans for Prosperity-Virginia, released the following statement:

“We applaud Governor Youngkin for vetoing the Prescription Drug Affordability Board – an Orwellian name for an entity that would have caused drug shortages and jeopardized patient care. There are better ways to lower prescription drug prices and improve health outcomes for Virginians. The Prescription Drug Affordability Board is not one of them. We, at Americans for Prosperity-Virginia, will continue advocating for patient-centered solutions and against Big Government mandates.”
