“Ohio Drug Price Relief Act” ballot issue: A look at both sides

September 19, 2017 @ 7:00 pm

The Ohio Drug Price Relief Act, a citizen-initiated statute slated for the November ballot, would require the state of Ohio to pay no more for prescription drugs than the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. And, regardless of how you plan to vote, it could end up
being the state’s most expensive ballot-issue campaign ever, according to political analysts and observers.

This forum will include arguments on both sides of this ballot issue and representatives from the Cleveland Clinic and CWRU Weatherhead/Medical School to further debate this complicated subject.

Panelists include:

  • J. B. Silvers, Ph.D. Case Western Reserve University Weatherhead School of
    Management and School of Medicine
  • Matt Borges, Campaign Manager, Ohio Taxpayers for Lower Drug Prices
  • Dale Butland, Communications Director, Ohioans Against the Deceptive Rx Ballot Issue
  • Moderator: Jeremy Pelzer, Cleveland.com
