The US House of Representatives this afternoon passed the Elijah E. Cummings Lower Drug Costs Now Act (House Resolution 3) by a largely party-line vote of 230 to 192.

The bill aims to lower prescription drug prices.

Two of Southwest Florida’s representatives, Reps. Greg Steube (R-17-Fla.) and Mario Diaz-Balart (R-25-Fla.) voted against the bill. Rep. Francis Rooney (R-19-Fla.) was absent.
