Maryland lawmakers are looking to rein in the cost of prescription drugs.

The General Assembly is expected to take up the Prescription Drug Affordability Act.

Democratic Delegate Joseline Pena-Melnyk told WBOC that she sees a difference from last year when the bill died in the state Senate.

Meanwhile, GOP Delegate Johnny Mautz told the television station that he joins his Democratic colleagues in that something must be done.

But he says that the state needs to address specific individual problems otherwise lawmakers will return to the same old arguments of the past.
