PROHIBIT MANUFACTURERS FROM CHARGING EXCESSIVE PRICES OR UNCONSCIONABLE INCREASES IN WHOLESALE ACQUISITION COSTS: A manufacturer of prescription drugs that is engaged in the conduct of trade or commerce shall not charge an excessive price for a prescription drug or change the price for a prescription drug in a manner that results in an unconscionable increase in the wholesale acquisition cost of that drug. If the drug consumer protection commission alleges that a manufacturer is charging an excessive price for a prescription drug or that there has been an unconscionable increase in a manufacturer’s wholesale acquisition cost for a prescription drug, the Attorney General must investigate.  The Attorney General can bring a class action suit for violations.
