Senior citizen groups are being urged to put the pressure on the State Legislature to get a prescription drug bill passed by the end of the session. The Senate and House have passed different versions of bills helping seniors pay for their prescription drugs. The bills replace the $200 tax credit approved by the Legislature a couple of years ago. It has become a financial money pit for the state, and lawmakers want something that better meets the needs of the elderly and does not give tax money to people who neither qualify nor apply. The House and Senate are jousting over which version of the legislation will be sent to Governor Holden.
