“The outbreak of meningitis connected to a prescription steroid medication highlights Michigan’s lack of consumer protection when it comes to pharmaceuticals. I introduced House Bill 4440, legislation that holds drug companies liable when they sell dangerous or defective medications that harm or kill patients, but House leaders haven’t allowed the bill to move out of committee. How many more Michigan residents must be harmed by dangerous medications before they are able to hold drug companies accountable, as patients can in every other state?”
