Indiana Bill Signing Ceremony
June 9, 2017 - Purdue Pharmacy faculty, students, and alumni are making a difference in the State of Indiana. This week, Gov. Eric Holcomb had a bill signing ceremony for HB 1540, the Pharmacy Modernization Bill. This bill is transformational in many regards. The 2017 legislative session also included high-impact pharmacy bills for the expansion of immunizations per SB 51, electronic prior authorization per SB 73, and for epinephrine and other emergency medications per SB 392. We are proud of Drs. Gloria Sachdev and John Hertig, Indiana Pharmacists Alliance Legislative and Regulatory Council co-chairs, and Dr. Karen Hudmon, as well as Rep. Steve Davisson (BS 1981) and Sen. Ron Grooms for their leadership to move these important reforms forward.
