The focus on “Right-to-try” legislation now shifts from Madison to Washington D.C. Late last week, Wisconsin became the 39th state to pass a “right to try” law that allows terminally ill patients to try experimental treatments that have passed a basic safety test from the FDA but are not on shelves yet. US Senator and author of the bill, Ron Johnson says it has passed the Senate and he hopes the House votes on it soon as it gives these patients hope.
Senator Johnson adds that he was happily surprised when President Trump singled this bill out during the State of the Union Address. Of the 11 states who currently do not have the Right-to-try bill passed into law, 10 have introduced the bill and Hawaii is the only state to veto.
