Medicare drug bill
Congressional committee staffs met last week and were scheduled to meet Feb. 22 in preparation for a House-Senate conference on legislation to provide outpatient prescription drugs under Medicare. House Speaker Wright (D-Texas) has set March 23 as a target for completing negotiations on a trade bill. After that date, work on reconciling S 1127 and HR 2470 can be expected to accelerate.
