Senate Releases Draft Track-And-Trace Language

The Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee has released draft language of legislation that establishes a system to track pharmaceuticals as they move from manufacturers to pharmacy shelves. The legislation was a sticking point in negotiations on major Food and Drug Administration legislation over the summer, and ultimately consumer watchdogs and the pharmaceutical industry could not agree on a proposal. Sen. Michael Bennett, D-Colo., said in a statement that the draft bill was “the result of continued, bipartisan, good-faith discussions among a variety of participants.”
