Robin Vos Blocking The Oncologist's Door

Thursday update:

GOP Assembly Speaker Rep. Robin Vos is apparently engineering in a closed-caucus process some face-saving, industry-friendly amendments to win his' support' for the oral chemotherapy drug access bill.

The Legislature adjourns in a matter of hours, and any changes to the bill would require the agreement of the Senate, where a 30-2 vote suggests little interest in Vos' one-man obeisance to lobbyists' agendas..

So one legislator dancing to the special interests' tune still stands between cancer patients and more affordable, less-invasive therapy.
