Maryland Prescription Drug Pricing Bill up for Court Hearing

Posted: 09/14/2017 07:42:00 -04:00 Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP)- A Maryland measure that would empower the state's attorney general to take action to stop pharmaceutical price gouging is scheduled for a hearing in federal court.

A motions hearing is set for U.S. District Court in Baltimore on Thursday.

A group representing manufacturers of generic prescription drugs has filed a lawsuit against the state. The Association for Accessible Medicines says the law, which takes effect Oct. 1, is an "unconstitutional overreach." They say it will create instability in the market for generic drugs.

Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh has said the law will give the state a "necessary tool to combat unjustified and extreme prices."

    New Waterfront Hotel Breaks Ground in O.C., Part 2

    The location of a new waterfront hotel that recently broke ground in Ocean City is raising some eyebrows with neighbors in the downtown area.

    The Cambria Hotel is being built in the vacant lot that sits just north of the Route 50 drawbridge, meaning it will be one of the first things drivers see headed into town.

    Brian Plimack, who lives just behind the development, said the hotel is too much of a drastic change to the town's skyline.
