Today, the House Appropriations Agriculture Subcommittee met to consider the fiscal year 2011 bill that funds the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The Subcommittee approved $2.571 billion in funding for the FDA.
This is an increase of $214 million above last year’s level and $55 million above the President’s request. C3 is very pleased with this proposed increase, and applauds the leadership of Chairwoman De Lauro, Ranking Member Kingston and the members of the Subcommittee.
Earlier this month, C3 advocates went to Capitol Hill to urge Congress to increase funding for the FDA. Register today as a C3 advocate, and we will update you on what you can do to help us make sure this increased funding for the FDA stays in the bill as it moves through the appropriations process.
