Vermont’s rules are getting even tougher for pharmaceutical companies. We look at new restrictions on how drugmakers can interact with physicians, and what patients can learn about gifts their doctors have received. Also, an update on the political meltdown in Albany as the New York State Senate argues over who’s in charge.

But a lawsuit was filed over whether the action was also a
limitation on free speech.
On Tuesday, the House debated whether to
repeal the law altogether or to delay it.
