SHOW TRANSCRIPT

California is set to become the first state to develop its own line of generic drugs. 

The legislature approved a measure that would allow the state to compete with major drug manufacturers. The end goal is to keep prices low. 

The bill specifically mentioned producing a generic insulin, but no other drugs were singled out. 

The governor has until the end of the month to sign it into law or veto it.
