MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker says he would sign into law a bill passed by the state Senate and pending approval in the Assembly that would make chemotherapy drugs in pill form more affordable for cancer patients.
Walker made his comments to reporters Wednesday in Appleton.
Walker says he would sign the bill that passed the Senate. He says, "I'm hopeful that's the bill that will pass the Assembly."
Assembly Speaker Robin Vos on Tuesday said the Assembly would consider making changes to the proposal before voting on whether to pass it on Thursday, something Walker said he didn't want to see happen.
Democrats and other advocates also were pushing for the Assembly to pass the bill in the same form as it cleared the Senate on a 30-2 vote
