Advocacy at a Glance

October 12, 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.

  • Hill Meetings, October 23rd and 24th.  The Alliance will be holding meetings on the Hill on October 23rd and 24th to discuss the impacts sequestration will have on the FDA. Please let us know if you are interested in participating in the meetings.
  • Congress Asks FDA to Do More. In today’s Analysis and Commentary, Steve Grossman 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.
  • Alliance Full Membership Meeting, Special Election Analysis Panel, November 13 at 10:00 a.m.  What is our prediction for the November election? Truthfully, we can’t predict it; but our legislative experts from Akin Gump are looking forward to providing you with an in-depth analysis for the Alliance on the Tuesday after the election. Please join us on Tuesday, November 13th at 10 a.m. for our Annual meeting, at which time former Congressman Tom Loeffler, Arshi Siddiqui, a former policy advisor to then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Juli Sullivan, a former top advisor to then-Majority Leader Tom Delay will provide you with their perspectives on how the election will impact the lame duck and the next Congress. (Note: The annual meeting was originally scheduled for November 6 and has been moved to the later date to accommodate this post-election analysis).
