By  | 

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WIFR) -- The Illinois House committee passed a bill Tuesday afternoon that would cap the cost of insulin in the state.

Senate Bill 667 would cap co-payments at $100 for all state patients.

The bill passed on 100-13-1 vote, weeks after the Illinois Senate passed the measure. It will head back to the Senate to reflect the changes made in the House before moving forward.

The bill is sponsored by Sen. Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill), who also introduced a bill to end Daylight Saving Time switches after 2020.
