From the Louisville (KY) Courier-Journal:
Cutting drug costs debated
Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Daniel Mongiardo called yesterday for federal legislation to allow Americans greater access to generic drugs and less-expensive medicine from foreign markets, such as Canada.

A spokesman for Republican U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning, who Mongiardo is challenging, said the new Medicare drug law that passed in December with Bunning's support will accelerate approval of generic drugs for the marketplace and ensures that the safety of drugs imported from Canada is certified by the U.S. government.
