Advocacy at a Glance
November 2, 2012
Advocacy at a Glance offers you the bullet point summary of current advocacy issues associated with the goals of the Alliance for a Stronger FDA.
- Election Re-Cap and Annual Meeting. Alliance members are asked to put the date of November 13th at 10:00 a.m. on their schedules. The Alliance will have a team of legislative experts from Akin Gump present on the results of the November election, and then will have its annual meeting.
- Congress Asks FDA to Do More. In today’s Analysis and Commentary, the Alliance examines the disconnect between Congress’s nonstop pressure for the FDA to do more and the very real barrier of sequestration. The agency will find it difficult to maintain the status quo, much less to do more.
- Upcoming Alliance Hill Meetings. We will be back on the Hill on November 14th and 15th to hold meetings with House and Senate staffers regarding the impacts sequestration would have on the FDA. Let us know if you are interested in participating on either or both of these two dates.
