Duckworth, Durbin Tout Democrats’ Prescription Drug Price Reductions at Central Illinois Family-Owned Pharmacy

U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) and U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) today visited the family-owned Curry’s Family Pharmacy in Riverton to meet with its staff and discuss how the Inflation Reduction Act, that they both championed and secured key provisions in, will help thousands of Illinois’s seniors afford life-saving prescription drugs and how, for the first time ever, it will allow Medicare to negotiate for lower medications costs.

The Senators were also joined by Illinois Pharmacists Association (IPA) students, IPA President Garth Reynolds, owner of several independent Illinois pharmacies Garry Moreland, AARP Advocacy and Outreach Director Ryan Gruenenfelder and AARP Illinois Executive Council Gregory Scott.
