In a rare airing of grievances, City Councilman Bill Greenlee publicly shamed his colleagues for voting against a big pharma transparency bill

To “restore trust among patients,” the bill would require drugmakers to register their sales reps with the health department, pass out health department warnings, wear health department badges and ID numbers, submit their drug marketing materials to the health department so it can suggest “further education and training” (for example, in pain management) for both salespeople and doctors, and pay a yearly fee of up to $250, in addition to the $500 a day charges for violations.
