Minnesota bill would expand law on medical disclosure
In 1993, the state Legislature adopted a law requiring drug companies to publicly report gifts and payments to doctors in Minnesota. Now, Minnesota's law could be the first in the nation to include the makers of medical devices, the state's signature industry. Sen. John Marty, DFL-Roseville, will hold a hearing on the bill before the Committee on Health, Housing and Family Security. Marty is a fan of the original 1993 law, but feels it has too many loopholes to be truly effective.
