COLUMBUS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Legal experts took aim recently at the drug companies’ devious scheme to mask their role in the campaign to defeat Ohio’s Issue 2 ballot measure. “Certainly, setting up an LLC to launder drug company money into fighting the ballot measure looks like an effort to evade Ohio's [campaign finance] transparency and disclosure laws,” said Brendan Fischer, a director at the nonpartisan Campaign Legal Center. Issue 2 will save Ohio taxpayers up to $536 million a year in drug purchasing costs, and it is hotly opposed by the drug industry.
Background on Ohio Ballot Issue 2
The Yes on Issue 2 campaign is a broad-based, bi-partisan coalition. More than 200,000 Ohio voters signed petitions to put an amendment on the ballot in November that will lower drug prices for over 4 million Ohioans, including 164,000 children, save taxpayers $400 million annually, reduce healthcare costs for everyone and teach greedy drug companies and their CEOs a lesson.
