U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, announced on Wednesday legislation he will introduce with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-New York, to penalize pharmaceutical companies that he says engage in price gouging without cause.

Brown said the price gouging leads to price spikes for patients who rely on medication to treat diseases, ranging from cancer to addiction.
