Motion

M-126: Portuguese Heritage Month

Second Reading.

Vote

Yea.

Rationale

This motion demonstrates the Government’s commitment to ensuring the results of federally funded health research are made available to the public, and to support reducing the costs of pharmaceutical drugs to improve access to needed medicines. Though this motion is not an explicit link to lowering drug costs, addressing “global access licensing” is one measure proposed by domestic and international stakeholders to reduce the cost of prescription drugs. The proposed Motion supports the Government’s efforts in enhancing public access to science supported by the federal government.

Result

Passed.
