A proposal to import prescription drugs from Canada to New Hampshire attracted bipartisan support at the Statehouse on Tuesday, winning praise from both the Democrat sponsoring the bill and the Republican he wants to replace in the corner office.

Sen. Dan Feltes, D-Concord, told the Senate Commerce Committee that New Hampshire residents struggling with some of the nation’s highest prescription drug costs are too often choosing between their health and their financial security. In a 2017 survey, roughly a fifth of residents with prescriptions stopped taking them at some point during the year because they couldn’t afford them, he said.
