SANTA FE – A bill that could pave the way for New Mexico to start importing prescription drugs from Canada is heading to the state House.
The Senate voted 35-0 Tuesday to approve the legislation, Senate Bill 1, which is aimed at making medication more accessible for New Mexico residents.
“Too many New Mexico families can’t afford medication. Too many families either skip filling their prescriptions or ration the medicine they have,” Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham said in a statement after the Senate voted on the bill.
