A new drug bill signed into law by Governor Tony Evers Tuesday has the backing of a local pharmacist. Jake Blazkovec, managing partner of Bay Hometown Pharmacy in Sturgeon Bay, says the "step therapy" legislation is a big win for consumers and healthcare providers. He says the new law will make it easier for patients to get needed prescription drugs.
The official signing by Gov. Evers of the Senate Bill 26 was held at the Hometown Pharmacy location in Janesville. Blazkovec credits local legislators Sen. Andre Jacque and Rep. Joel Kitchens in helping to get the bi-partisan bill approved.
