Mail is for Subscriptions NOT Prescriptions
Ask your legislator to Vote YES on H.B. 511 & S.B. 201 (Update: Passed)
Magazine subscriptions come in the mail, prescriptions should not! By supporting H.B. 511 and S.B. 201, you can choose where you get your prescriptions. Tell your legislator you want a choice of where to get your prescription. To find out who your legislator is, simply visit www.legis.state.pa.us and click on Find Your Legislator.
