(MADISON)—Today, Senator Tim Carpenter issued the following statement regarding his appointment to Governor Evers’ Task Force on Reducing Prescription Drug Prices:

“Prices for treatments have risen to unsustainable levels in Wisconsin and across the country. It is necessary now for our government to take action on this issue which can have life and death effects for the citizens of Wisconsin.

“As a member of Governor Evers’ taskforce, I will be looking out for patients and making sure that their needs are brought to the front of everyone’s mind. When diabetics are dying because they cannot afford enough insulin and start rationing, and when people feel they must take a risk because they are being viciously priced out of being able to carry an Epipen, consumers need an advocate.

“I would like to thank Governor Evers for bringing together this taskforce. Working together, I am confident that we will make progress on this issue, and bring prescription and health care prices back to reasonable levels.”
