Congress Must Act Fast to Forestall State Drug-Tracking System: Lawmaker
With the final FDA user fee legislation lacking language to support a national track-and-trace system, Congress must now act fast to preempt California’s e-pedigree law, slated to go into effect in 2015, Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) says. “Everybody would be better off with a national approach to this,” Bennet told WDL Wednesday. “A state-by-state approach is not going to get us where we need to be from an economic point of view, and from a safety point of view, so we are going to keep working on it,” Bennet said at a conference on biomedical innovation in Washington, D.C., hosted by the Brookings Institution.
