Confused about State Issue 2?: Channel 7 special report airs Sunday

Voters looking to learn more about Issue 2 can hear from both sides on a special edition of WHIO Reports this Sunday on Channel 7 at 11:30 a.m.

You can also listen to the show on AM1290 and News 95.7 WHIO Sunday morning at 8:30.

The ballot issue has been the focus of expensive TV ad campaigns, with more than $20 million already spent. But voters have expressed confusion over what the law, if passed, would actually do to prescription drug prices in the state.

This week on WHIO Reports, we take a look at prescription drug prices in the state of Ohio with comments from both sides of State Issue 2.

Host Jim Otte and Dayton Daily News reporter Katie Wedell spoke with both supporters and opponents of the proposed state statute, which will appear on the Nov. 7 ballot.

Issue 2 would require that state-funded health care programs — including for example the Ohio Department of Medicaid, public employee health plans and prisons — pay the same or lower prices for prescription drugs as the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

The Dayton Daily News will also have in-depth coverage of the issue in Sunday’s paper.

SPECIAL EVENT

Join us at 7 p.m. on Oct. 12 at Sinclair Community College for a forum on Issue 2 to get your questions answered and hear both sides make their cases.

You need to sign up to attend the event at Prescriptiondrugissue.eventbrite.com.Seats are limited. You can find more information at the event on the website.
