EXCERPT

In an effort to cut the cost of prescription drugs, a law that has created Maryland’s Prescription Drug Affordability Board also goes into effect.

Vincent DeMarco, president of Maryland Citizen’s Health Initiative, called the law “the first of its kind” in the nation.

The five-member board will — pending approval by the Legislative Policy Committee — have the authority to set the maximum costs for drugs bought by state and local governments.
