Hilltop Public Solutions (a national public affairs/lobbying group) is “… working to support federal legislation that would hold big Pharma accountable, lower drug costs, prevent drug prices from rising faster than inflation under Medicare, and increase drug price transparency. The legislation is sponsored by Republican Senator Grassley and Democratic Senator Wyden, and passed out of committee with unanimous democrat support. You can read more about it here. Attached is a one page summary and some sample social media posts. Senator Cory Gardner is our target, and we are trying to get him to support the legislation.”
Senator Chuck Grassley’s (IOWA) office put out this list of supporters of the bill on July 23, 2019:
It includes the AARP, White House, Americas Health Insurance Plans, Association for accessible medicine. We are asking supportive groups to tweet or post on FB and tag Cory Gardner call his office or submit an op ed.

However, remember from our CSL citizen lobbyist classes, that a citizen’s personal story about the the issue to emailed, mailed via U.S.P.S. or a phone call to your district’s legislators will have the most impact.
