There was an informational forum on Issue 2 at the University of Findlay Monday night. If passed, Issue 2 will allow the state government to negotiate for the same prices on drugs that the Veterans Affairs does. David Little spoke in favor of the issue and said that it should e a right.
Little said that voting yes will help drive the cost of prescriptions drugs down. His opponent, Dale Butland, disagreed. He said that passing the issue will create a cost shift. While some prices might go down other will go up. He added that the VA handles their prescriptions differently from the state.
One thing both sides did agree on was that issue 2 is complex and confusing.
