(Bismarck, ND) -- A bipartisan group of North Dakota legislators are working to keep the cost of insulin down for residents.

Senate Bill 2140 would cap the price of the lifesaving drug at 25-dollars a month.

The co-pays for medical supplies like test strips, glucose meters and insulin pens would also be capped at 25-dollars for a 30-day supply.

The bill has support on both sides of the aisle with several Senators agreeing there's no reason for insulin to be priced as high as it is.
