Earlier today, the Senate Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee marked up their Appropriations bill. The bill includes the largest increase for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in recent memory and is significantly larger than the House bill.
Senator Kohl, Chairman of the Subcommittee, announced $186 million in additional funding for the FDA, which is $120 million above the President’s request.
C3: Colorectal Cancer Coalition would like to thank Chairman Kohl and the other Members of the Subcommittee for the substantial increase in funds to FDA. This increase will result in enhanced drug safety for all colorectal cancer patients.
