Proposition
61
, The California Drug Price Relief Act, is a simple measure that
allows California to leverage its massive negotiating power to achieve
lower drug prices for the most vulnerable Californians. Drug companies
are scared of Proposition 61 because they know it will put us on the
road to lower drug prices.

About Proposition 61

Proposition 61 would require the state of California to negotiate with
drug companies for drug prices that are no more than is paid for the
same drugs by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA). Unlike
Medicare, the DVA negotiates for drug prices on behalf of the millions
veterans it serves, and pays on average 20-24 percent less for
medications than other government agencies, and up to 40 percent less
than Medicare Part D. Prop. 61 empowers the state, as the
healthcare buyer for millions of Californians, to negotiate a better
deal for taxpayers, saving the state billions.
