From the Munster (Ind.) Times:
Blagojevich takes import drug case to D.C.
Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich continued his push Tuesday for the importation of cheaper prescription drugs, urging the Food and Drug Administration, Congress and the White House to support a pilot program for his state.

"We're here to share ideas and develop new, innovative solutions to the growing crisis in prescription drug prices," Blagojevich said. By importing drugs from Canada, Blagojevich said Illinois state health plan participants could save nearly $91 million annually.
