Advocacy at a Glance

November 4, 2011

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.

  • FY12 Agriculture/FDA Appropriations Bill Status Update. On Tuesday, the Senate passed the FY12 Agriculture Appropriations bill with a $50 million increase for the Food and Drug Administration.  This is in contrast to the $285 million cut in the FY12 House-passed bill.  The House and the Senate are now  conferencing.  For more details on the status of the FY 2012 Agriculture FDA Appropriations please see yesterday’s analysis and commentary.
  • Action Item Request: Conference Letter.  The Alliance is asking Alliance member organizations to send letters encouraging House and Senate appropriators to agree upon the higher Senate levels.   Please click here to find a document with information about to whom the letters should be addressed, and also provides some broad messaging.
