FDA to Get $107 Million Increase Under Proposed CR

April 12, 2011

In a media release issued earlier today the Alliance has applauded Congressional action in proposing a $107 million increase over FY 10 funding levels for the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, “despite the tremendous downward pressures on the federal budget.”

Under the funding legislation to be considered this week by Congress, FDA will receive $2.462 billion in budget authority appropriations for FY 11, the current fiscal year. Congress also included language that permits FDA to utilize $170 million of HHS monies to support development of medical countermeasures to respond to chemical, biological, radiation or nuclear attack by terrorists.
