MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — The state of Vermont, which last year enacted a law banning drug companies from providing free lunches to doctors, now may go a step further by requiring the companies to disclose the free drug samples they give to physicians.

If the state enacts the requirement, it would be the first to do so.

Attorney General William Sorrell, who recommended in a recent report that the drug companies be required to disclose what it gives to doctors and other providers, is to testify before lawmakers at a hearing Friday in the Statehouse.
