Advocacy at a Glance

October 19, 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 impact that sequestration will have on the FDA.  Please let us know if you are interested in participating in the meetings.
  • New Sequestration Resource for Members: FDA Funding Subject to Sequester by Center and Funding Source.  The Alliance has created a new chart estimating sequestration’s impact on FDA, broken out by Center, program, and funding source.  Since OMB is unlikely to provide such a breakout until very close to the date of the Sequester (January 2, 2013), the Alliance compiled this report, based on a number of sources, as our best estimate.  This chart will be used by the Alliance on the Hill, and can be disseminated by Alliance members in your own advocacy.  However, it is important to note that this is a preliminary estimate, and not an official government document.
  • Alliance Full Membership Meeting, Special Election Analysis Panel, November 13 at 10:00 am.  Join our legislative experts from Akin Gump for an in-depth election analysis on the Tuesday after the election.  Our annual meeting will occur after the panel.
