I just wanted to clarify something in the February 1 edition of The News. The bill that Sen. Brown introduced was federal legislation, not just an Ohio bill. As such, the increased utilization of pharmacists can be done in any state which allows pharmacists to practice in an expanded capacity, not just Ohio. Ohio happens to be very much in the forefront in this endeavor.
