WASHINGTON DC (February 11, 2020) — Prepared floor remarks by Senator Charles "Chuck" Grassley, Chairman, Senate Finance Committee:


Yesterday, Sen Martha McSally announced her support for the bipartisan Prescription Drug Pricing Reduction Act.

Sen McSally and I worked together on several parts of the bill. Arizonans should know that Sen McSally’s leadership is making all the difference in moving this bill forward.

President Trump, Vice President Pence, and nearly a dozen Senate Republicans have so far endorsed this bill. Several other Senate Republicans will soon announce their support as well. I expect to introduce an updated version in the coming weeks.

I’m confident that if this bill were brought up for a vote, it would pass overwhelmingly. Let’s not miss an opportunity to deliver real progress for Americans.
