(Before It's News)

declanA bill sponsored by Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon that will save an estimated $200 million per year on government employees’ prescription drugs was passed by the State Assembly  and signed into law by Governor Chris Christie today.

S2749/A4328 expedites the process in which the state selects contracts and controls costs for state worker prescription drugs.

“Gov. Christie has called on the legislature and unions to work together to save $250 million from the state budget, and this is a solid step in that direction,” said O’Scanlon (R—Monmouth), the Assembly Republican budget officer. “Increasing efficiencies and eliminating costly duplication will produce significant taxpayer savings without any effect on the care or benefits of workers and their families, a true win/win.”
