At a glance

  • Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced a lawsuit against U.S. Food and Drug Administration saying that they had not complied with a public-records request about the state’s proposed program to import cheaper prescription drugs from Canada.
  • “Big Pharma is very powerful in Congress and with different people in Washington. And so, they’re able to structure this a lot of times in ways that benefit them over the average American,” said DeSantis. “We found there was a provision of law from 2003 that said states could apply to HHS to purchase drugs from Canada, and these are the same drugs that you purchase here.”
