Next Week in the Legislature: Why I Love that the Democrats Are in Control in Olympia

posted by on February 16 at 13:06 PM

This bill, which requires public disclosure of gifts from drug companies to healthcare providers—searchable online by both pharmaceutical company and your doc—is up for a hearing in the health-care committee next week.

The bill is being sponsored by Seattle-area Senator Jeanne Kohl-Welles (D-36, Ballard, Queen Anne, Magnolia).

I am going to testify against NASCAR at both the house and senate hearing on Tuesday. I'll send you a copy of my testimony statement.

Jeanne rocks! and noone cars about NASCAR - tell them to do high mpg car races.

I just talked to Sen. Jacobsen about why he took his name of the Senate bill. You'll be disappointed to hear that he didn't denounce the bill at all. He simply said he wanted to give it a closer read, and he wanted to make sure it wasn't tied up with any Sonics bill.

Anyway, have fun testifying. And definitely send my your testimony.

Dude, Jeanne is firing on all cylinders these days. I'm very proud to live in Crown Hill!

I would be happier with a bill that mandated the Death Penalty for any pharmaceutical company providing any gift to a health care provider. I guess I'm too old school. I don't think they should have ever allowed pharm advertising....

One small step towards trying to yank docs from the Pharma teat. Go Jeanne!
