From the Providence (RI) Journal:
Brown wants R.I. to join prescription drug-import program
Secretary of State Matthew Brown asked Governor Carcieri today to enroll Rhode Island in a new drug-import program to make cheaper prescription drugs available from Canada and Europe despite a federal ban on the imports.

Illinois and Wisconsin launched the program, called I-SaveRx, in October to offer savings on about 100 medications of up to 50 percent off U.S. retail prices. Missouri also has joined.

"This is a great opportunity for Rhode Islanders to get the safe, affordable prescription drugs they need," Brown said in a statement. "I urge Governor Carcieri to enroll Rhode Island in I-SaveRx immediately."
