In March 2021, Gov. Evers visited Bridge Clinic in Wausau to celebrate their COVID-19 vaccination efforts and to sign a bill to increase transparency in prescription drug supply chains and help control out-of-pocket costs for patients.
At the Wausau City Hall, Gov. Evers announced his “Less for Rx” Prescription Drug Plan to reduce the price of prescription drugs and ensure Wisconsinites have access to quality, affordable healthcare, including life-saving medications and insulin.
