From the Alton (Ill.) Telegraph:
State aging official touts prescription drug program for seniors
Even if only one person benefits from a new prescription drug importation program, Charles Johnson believes it will be worth it.

Johnson, director of the Illinois Department on Aging, met Friday with senior citizens in Alton to discuss the I-SaveRx program instituted two months ago by Gov. Rod Blagojevich. As of early this week, only 1,206 people out of a total population of nearly 24 million in three states had signed up for the program, which involves importing prescription drugs from Canada, Ireland and the United Kingdom.
