Washington, DC—Today, Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT), the Chairman of the Senate Republican High-Tech Task Force and co-author of the Hatch-Waxman Act, filed an amendment in the Senate Judiciary Committee to restore the careful balance the Hatch-Waxman Act struck to incentivize generic drug development. Senator Hatch’s amendment, the Hatch-Waxman Integrity Act of 2018, would prevent alternative procedures for challenging drug patents from tilting the playing field contrary to Hatch-Waxman’s design. It would also ensure that brand-name and generic manufacturers alike have the proper incentives to develop life-saving medications.
