We need your help. Governor Bruce Rauner of Illinois has yet to sign Senate Bill 455 – An Amendment to the Pharmacy Practice Act, a piece of legislation that will increase accessibility to life-changing medications and potentially pass cost-savings on to patients.
If passed into law, the bill will establish a safe pathway for only biosimilars deemed interchangeable by the FDA to be substituted in the state of Illinois. To urge the governor to sign this bill, please consider sending him an email at [email protected], and kindly copy [email protected] and [email protected] as well.
Here’s what you can say:
Dear Governor Rauner,
My name is ____________ and I am a CITY, IL resident. I’ve lived with CONDITION for # years. Senate Bill 455 will expand treatment options in the safest and most transparent way for patients with autoimmune diseases like me. Senate Bill 455 will potentially save us money on the incredibly expensive medications that we need in order to be productive members of society. I support this legislation and respectfully request that you sign it into law. Thank you for your time and attention.
