House of Representatives
Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session

From: Representative Rob W. Kauffman
To: All House members
Subject: Pharmacy Act

In the near future I will be introducing legislation to require pharmacies located outside of Pennsylvania to register with the State Board of Pharmacy if they fill prescription orders for residents of the Commonwealth.

Currently, the Pharmacy Act (Act 699 of 1961) does not specifically address out-of-state, or nonresident, pharmacies. My legislation will correct this oversight. Among other provisions in the bill, in order to register nonresident pharmacies will be required to have a valid license in their home state and provide a copy of their most recent inspection report. The provisions in my legislation are similar to existing requirements in many other states and I believe it is time we correct this deficiency in Pennsylvania law.

I invite you to join me in cosponsoring this legislation. Thank you.

Introduced as HB1822
