North Dakota Sen. Byron Dorgan and Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer have asked federal officials to allow their states to buy prescription medicines from Canada, a move they say could save their constituents $400 million annually.
Dorgan and Schweitzer signed a letter to Kathleen Sebelius, health and human services secretary, asking her to allow the imports. Federal law allows importation of medicines from Canada if the secretary says it would be safe to do so.
