From the Lexington (KY) Herald-Leader:
State auditor urges hearings on buying Canadian drugs
The Kentucky General Assembly should hold public hearings to gather expert testimony about purchasing prescription drugs from Canada, state Auditor of Public Accounts Crit Luallen urged Tuesday morning.

Luallen’s office issued a study that indicates that the state could save $107 million a year if all prescription drugs for state employees and Medicaid recipients were bought from Canada.

“It’s time we think outside the box,” Luallen said. “We must go after all the savings that we can.”
