President Trump and senators from both parties are still hoping to force drug makers to disclose list prices in TV ads, The Hill reports. The disclosure rule was one of Trump’s highest-profile initiatives and the first policy released after the administration unveiled its drug pricing “blueprint” in 2018. But in July, a federal judge sided with a coalition of three drug makers and advertisers and blocked the Trump administration from implementing the policy.
