Kentucky Gov. Beshear tells Florida to keep prescription tracking system

Rick Scott, to reconsider a call to scrap a monitoring system that could help stem the flow of prescription pills from Florida to Kentucky. Scott was unfazed Tuesday by criticism he's getting from out-of-state politicians over his proposal to kill a proposed prescription tracking system designed to crack down on "pill mills" that supply pain killers and other illicit medications to drug dealers and addicts.
