This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

SENATE LABOR TO WORK WITH APPROPRIATIONS CMTE. FOR FULL FDA FUNDING COMMITTEE to "make sure that the FDA has the full level of funding it needs to perform its vital functions across each of the centers," Labor Chairman James Jeffords (R-Vt.) told FDA topsiders at a March 19 hearing on agency funding for FY 1998 and other issues. "It is essential to note that under PDUFA, these user fees by law may not be collected unless the appropriations committees make them available to the FDA 1992 level of appropriated funds to the agency, updated for inflation," Jeffords remarked. "The Administration's proposal puts this important principle at risk" by cutting the agency's budget by 8% without unauthorized user fees, Jeffords maintained.
