TX: Bill to allow low-cost prescription drug imports from Canada headed to Gov. Abbott’s desk

If signed into law, House Bill 25 would allow Texas to import low-cost prescription drugs from Canada, where some medications cost half of what they do in the U.S.

A bill that would allow Texas to import low-cost prescription drugs from Canada is headed to Gov. Greg Abbott’s desk.

House Bill 25, authored by State Rep. James Talarico (D-Round Rock), would create the Texas Wholesale Prescription Drug Importation Program. The program would allow Texas to import low-cost medicine from Canada with “tight regulatory safeguards approved by the FDA,” according to a press release from Talarico’s office.

Talarico said if the bill is signed it law, it would save Texans an estimated 60% to 70% off medications like EpiPens, blood pressure medicine and cancer drugs. Talarico said six states have already passed similar legislation.
