Food Safety winner at FDA
1 February 2010 11:40 am
Obama has called for a big boost for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to $4 billion total. $2.5 billion of that will come from the administration and the rest from drug company user fees. The total is up from $2.69 billion in the agency’s current 2009 budget and also significantly higher than the $3.28 billion he requested last year ($2.36 billion of that from the administration). A large portion of FDA’s increase, $1.4 billion, goes to strengthening food safety.
