From the Knoxville (KY) Courier Journal:
Kernan may back Canadian drug sales
Speaking to Clarksville senior citizens yesterday, Gov. Joe Kernan rolled out a plan to fight rising prescription drug costs.

Kernan called drug prices and the lack of insurance coverage a "national crisis," adding that if the federal government does not address the issue by March, he might support importing drugs from Canada and other countries.

"It is not a step that I want to take," he said. "It doesn't make any sense for us to have to go up to Canada and bring drugs that were produced in the United States back into the United States. But the fact is that we have got to get to the bottom of this problem."
