C3 would like to thank Senator Herbert Kohl (D-WI) for his continued fight for increased funding for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Senator Kohl has assured that $275 million in additional funding for the FDA will be included in this year’s Emergency Supplemental Appropriations bill.
“Senator Kohl continues to be FDA’s champion in the quest for additional funds. We are grateful for his leadership and fully support his efforts,” said Wayne Pines, President of the Alliance for a Stronger FDA. “By placing additional funding in this year’s emergency supplemental bill, Senator Kohl has highlighted the size and urgency of FDA’s needs.”
The supplemental appropriations bill is primarily used to fund defense and the continued war effort. House and Senate leadership will now have to decide on how much of the final bill will fund domestic programs.
