Whereas Americans of all walks of life are feeling the pressures of the high price of prescription drugs;
Whereas several states, including some bordering Iowa, have discussed banding together in a consortium to address the price of prescription drugs;
Whereas studies have shown that the larger the purchase of a particular drug, the lower the price; and
Whereas a consortium of like-minded states could enable a smaller state like Iowa to participate in the cost savings of large purchases that Iowa alone would not be able to realize; now, be it
Resolved that the state of Iowa shall willingly and with all possible speed agree to join such a consortium if one is discussed with like-minded states, in order to realize the largest possible savings on prescriptions for the citizens of the state.
