From the Chicago Sun Times:
Blagojevich asks Bush for help with Canada drugs
Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle and Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich sent a letter to President Bush on Wednesday asking him to discourage Canada from prohibiting selling cheaper prescription drugs to Americans.

Last year, Blagojevich and Doyle launched I-SaveRx, a multistate program to import cheaper prescription drugs from Europe and Canada. The program uses a Canada-based clearinghouse to connect residents of Illinois, Wisconsin and other states to pharmacies and wholesalers in Canada, Ireland and the United Kingdom. It claims to save residents up to 50 percent on about 100 prescription drugs.
