Washington, D.C. – The Campaign for Sustainable Rx Pricing (CSRxP) issued a statement Thursday applauding the passage of the Ensuring Innovation Act and the Advancing Education on Biosimilars Act of 2021 in the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday. Both bills passed out of the U.S. Senate earlier this month.
“Members of the 117th Congress have taken an important first step to boost generic and biosimilar competition in order to deliver more affordable options for American patients,” said CSRxP executive director Lauren Aronson. “We applaud lawmakers for advancing these bipartisan, market-based solutions that will help crack down on Big Pharma’s abuse of the patent system and emphasize the importance of competition to lower prescription drug prices.”
