A bill passing the House and moving to the Senate would replace a bloated prescription drug tax credit for senior citizens with another program. Governor Holden is solidly behind the program that would protect senior citizens from paying more than a tenth of their incomes on prescription drugs. It would require a $25 application fee and co-payments for drugs. It would replace the current $200 tax credit that was estimated to cost $20-million but ended up ballooning to $80-million.
