Representative Bill Post Testifies In Favor Of “Sudafed Rx Repeal”

State Representative Bill Post,

State Representative Bill Post (R-Keizer) testified before the House Health Care Committee in favor of House Bill 2128, which would make it easier to access certain medicines, like Sudafed, that have been proven as effective remedies for certain cold and flu like symptoms. In presenting the proposal, Representative Post argued that Oregon’s current law requiring adults to obtain a prescription in order to use pseudoephedrine is overly restrictive and has not solved the problem the law was originally intended to solve.Representative Post’s testimony before the House Health Care Committee can be viewed at the following link:
