Block said there were two issues especially where Kramer has had an impact. Kramer has made strides in repealing the state’s minimum markup law, including recent passage by the Assembly of repealing the minimum markup for prescription drugs. The other issue is financial transparency for the state, an issue AFP is going to be making a big push for this year.
Kramer said it was great to win the award. “I was a member of AFP from the beginning. I go to as many of their events as I can. I was an activist before I was a legislator.”
Kramer said his acceptance speech will give credit to the organization and people in the room.
“Holding legislators’ feet to the fire is more critical than they know. I want them to know I am with them and that I take their work seriously.”
