Washington, D.C. – The Campaign for Sustainable Rx Pricing (CSRxP) issued a statement Monday reacting to reports President-elect Biden will nominate California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to serve as Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

“Attorney General Becerra has a demonstrated track record of standing up for consumers and CSRxP looks forward to working with him and the administration to advance market-based solutions to lower prescription drug prices, cut through drug companies’ blame game by pulling back the misguided Rebate Rule and hold Big Pharma accountable,” said CSRxP executive director Lauren Aronson. “It will be particularly critical for the next HHS secretary to encourage greater prescription drug pricing transparency, foster generic and biosimilar competition and crack down on Big Pharma’s egregious price-gouging and anti-competitive practices.”
