[JURIST] A long-awaited FDA ruling on access to an emergency contraceptive called Plan B [FDA Q/A] is expected to be announced by the end of the month, as part of a deal that got Lester Crawford [official profile] approved by the Senate [JURIST report] as the new Food and Drug Administration [official website] chief. However, the ruling is unlikely to settle much, as individual states continue to discuss their own limits for sales of the drug. The Massachusetts legislature is likely to override the governor's July veto of a bill [JURIST report] that would allow the pill to be sold without a prescription; seven other states already do so. A similar law was vetoed in New York [JURIST report] earlier this month but appears unlikely to be overridden. AP has more.
