Democrats Support Increased Freedom from High Cancer Treatment Costs
Despite Assembly Amendment, Cancer Treatment Fairness Act Deserves Passage Before End of Session
 
MADISON – Today, Senate Democratic Leader Chris Larson released the following statement regarding the actions taken in the state Assembly last night on the Cancer Treatment Fairness Act, SB 300. 
 
“Democrats always support expanding freedom from the high cost of health care. While the Assembly amendment is an unfortunate delay, the bill still provides significant cost savings for cancer patients. It’s our hope that Senator Fitzgerald refrains from additional political gimmicks that benefit special interests and instead schedules this bill for a vote on our last scheduled day of session, April 1.”
