Senator Mar Roxas has lauded his Senate colleagues for their overwhelming support of his cheaper medicines bill after the said bill was approved on its second reading.

I thank my colleagues in the Senate for their overwhelming support for the Quality Affordable Medicines bill. We look forward to the House version and continue to keep an open mind so we can come up with the best law for the people,” he said.
Although President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo already certified Sen. Roxas' cheaper medicines bill, he is now urging anew to certify Senate Bill No. 1658 as an 'urgent bill' which is a consolidation of all the cheaper medicines-related bills.
The Administration certified it as urgent in the last Congress, and it has committed to do the same now. Ultimately, it will depend on the administration’s political will that would decide the fate of these measures,” he added.
Finally, we are now one step closer in bringing these medicine prices down through the help of Senator Roxas and the people who support this bill.
