From the (Manchester, NH) Union Leader:
Drug bills vie for support
Competing plans in the U.S. Senate that would allow patients to buy prescriptions from Canada and Europe could mean that some sort of reimportation law is on the horizon, observers say.

The question on many minds is whether buying from foreign pharmacies really solves the problem of high prices in the United States.

Sen. Judd Gregg, R-NH, introduced a plan last week that would allow importation of prescriptions from Canada and Europe, under control of the Federal Drug Administration. Gregg chairs the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, giving him some power over what a final version of the bill will look like.
