December 2, 2008

By Bryon F. Powell

On November 26, 2008, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health delayed plans to propose emergency regulations that would implement the state’s recently enacted pharmaceutical and device marketing law at a December 10 meeting of the Public Health Council.  A pair of hearings will be held in January 2009 to address issues surrounding the law with the earliest possible vote on proposed regulations taking place in February.  We previously reported on the enactment of Senate Bill 2863.
