Will House Let Drug Database Die?

Unless the House takes up and passes a Senate bill today that allows pharmaceutical company grants to Florida’s prescription drug database, it could soon run out of money, The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

The Senate unanimously passed the bill, which would also require pain-clinic doctors to consult the database for new patients. The database gets no state funding and has been subsisting on private grants.
