Consumers Union letter to House supporting inclusion of CREATES Act in budget agreement

SUMMARY: This letter — to Speaker Ryan, Leader Pelosi, and the Chairman and Ranking Member of the House Committees on the Judiciary and on Energy and Commerce — urges that the CREATES Act be included as part of the pending budget agreement. The CREATES Act addresses two anticompetitive tactics some brand-name drug manufacturers have been using to block the ability of more affordable generic alternatives to get into the market and give consumers a choice.
