DECATUR – Decatur-area residents concerned about rising prescription drug prices will have an opportunity to share their stories and find out what State Senator Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill) is doing to lower drug costs at a Decatur Town Hall on Prescription Drug Prices on Thursday, March 12.

“Our goal is to help people understand exactly why prescription drug prices are so high and hear the concerns of families and individuals who are bearing the brunt of an industry plagued by profiteering,” Manar said. “Most importantly, we want people to know that we can deliver change to this deeply flawed industry by raising our collective voice and demanding transparency and accountability.”

Last week, Manar unveiled legislation to establish a Prescription Drug Affordability Board, which would review data on drug prices and set new price limits on state-regulated plans. The bill is part of a broad package aimed at lowering the cost of prescription drugs.

The event is co-sponsored by the Decatur NAACP Branch, Decatur-Macon County Senior Center, AARP Illinois, Protect Our Care Illinois, and AFSCME Council 31.

For questions or additional information, Manar urges residents to contact his office at 217-782-0228.
