Post-Election Statement from the Alliance for a Stronger FDA

November 7, 2012

As advocates for a properly-funded FDA, the Alliance for a Stronger FDA hopes that Members of Congress will deal constructively and promptly with deficit reduction and budgetary priorities.  Specifically, we urge Congress to:

  • Recognize and properly fund the special and growing role of FDA as a protector of food and drug safety and a gateway to medical innovation and science.
  • Find alternative means to reduce the budget deficit and avoid the across-the-board sequestration of 8.2% of federal agency funding on January 2, 2013.
  • Recognize that FDA, as the nation’s premier consumer protection agency with newly-mandated responsibilities, merits special budgetary consideration by the Congress.
