With new allies and approaches, California lawmakers try again to confront high prescription drug prices

Today 11:45 GMT

Less rowdy than the sputtered push for single-payer healthcare and less fraught than the battle over Obamacare’s future, the concern over the cost of prescription drug prices has been overshadowed for the past year by the marquee healthcare battles gripping Sacramento and Washington.
