House votes to allow Canada drug imports.

The Associated Press is reporting (via Yahoo! News) that the House of Representatives voted 389-31 to approve a $16.8 billion appropriations bill for the Dep't of Agriculture and the FDA that includes a measure that would legalize prescription drug purchases from Canadian sources. That's the good news. The bad news: "The provision is not expected to remain in the final spending bill to be reconciled later by House and Senate negotiators, a Republican staff member said. . . . A nearly identical plan was passed by the House last year, only to be removed later in House-Senate negotiations."
