MADISON, Wis. (AP) – The Wisconsin state Senate plans to vote next week on a bill designed to make chemotherapy drugs that can be taken at home in pill form more affordable.

A spokeswoman for Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said Monday that based on the broad bipartisan support the bill received Friday in the Assembly, it will be up for a vote without further changes on April 1. That is the Senate’s last day in session for the year.

The Assembly passed the bill after including a $100 copayment cap. That was not a part of the bill when the Senate approved it last week, requiring another vote.

Gov. Scott Walker has said he will sign the bill once it passes the Legislature.
