From the Washington Post:
Support Grows for Medicine Program
The Montgomery County Council appears likely to endorse a plan that would offer county employees and retirees the opportunity to buy lower-cost drugs -- in all likelihood from a Canadian intermediary -- as early as February of next year.

The council's three-member Management and Fiscal Policy Committee unanimously endorsed the plan Tuesday, bringing to five the number of council members who are on record in favor of the measure. "It's obvious that a majority of the council . . . now supports this proposal," said committee chairman Marilyn Praisner (D-Eastern County).
