Wednesday’s business headlines

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Here’s a look at Wednesday’s business headlines.


Eli Lilly is known for its conservative pricing of drugs, which may help protect it as there is bipartisan support to put caps on drug prices.

CEO David Ricks acknowledged that there is room to work with regulators.

The reigning in of the prices might well pinch margins for many of major pharmaceutical companies.


Pfizer and Mylan are warning that some EpiPen and EpiPen Jr. auto injectors may not quickly slide out of carrier tubes due to labels that aren’t fully adhered.

The labels on some EpiPen and EpiPen Jr. auto injectors and generics could stick, not allowing people who need them in emergencies to access them easily.

Mylan says one in 14,000 EpiPens is impacted.

If you have a question, take the pen to a pharmacist and have them look at it.


Seventy-nine percent of farmers support or strongly support President Trump, according to a survey of 600 commercial farmers and ranchers commissioned by Agri-Pulse, an industry publication.

Ninety-two percent of teh GOP farmers approved of the way Trump is handling the presidency, compared to 33 percent of the Democrats and 65 of the Independents.

West Virginia voting

Nearly 140 West Virginians living abroad in 29 countries have cast their election ballots in an unprecendented pilot project that involves voting remotely by mobile device.

The pilot used a mixture of smartphones, facial recognition and the same technology that underpins bitcoin- the Blockchain- in an effort to create a large-scale and secure way for service members to vote.

West Virginia is the first state to run a blockchain-based voting project at such a scale, state officials say.
