TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – A bill to help the Florida attorney general sue drug manufacturers and pharmacies is heading to Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis.

The Senate unanimously passed a bill Friday that gives Attorney General Ashley Moody access to information in the state’s prescription drug data base to help her case against companies that make opioids and pharmacies that the state claims oversold pain pills and didn’t take precautions against illegal sales.
