Further details on additional statewide stops will be available on our  Facebook  page!

The On the Road for Lower Drug Prices tour has already stopped in Los Angeles, Orange County, Bakersfield, Stockton and Merced. You can still catch the bus as it makes stops in Modesto, Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz, Oakland, San Diego, Sacramento, Riverside, San Francisco, San Jose, and more!


Prop 61 is a simple measure that allows California to leverage its massive negotiating power to achieve lower drug prices for the most vulnerable Californians. Drug companies are scared of Proposition 61 because they know it will put us on the road to lower drug prices!

Proposition 61 would require the state of California to negotiate with drug companies for drug prices that are no more than is paid for the same drugs by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA). Unlike Medicare, the DVA negotiates for drug prices on behalf of the millions veterans it serves, and pays on average 20-24 percent less for medications than other government agencies, and up to 40 percent less than Medicare Part D. Prop. 61 empowers the state, as the healthcare buyer for millions of Californians, to negotiate a better deal for taxpayers, saving the state billions.
