Drugmaker Novo Nordisk said on Wednesday that new legislation being prepared in some U.S. states to improve pricing transparency could potentially impact business in its key market.

“A couple of states like Nevada and California have pursued transparency bills where we have to disclose, basically, how we do business,” he said.
