The Trump administration is proposing to change the FDA’s name to the Federal Drug Administration and shift the agency’s food programs to the U.S. Department of Agriculture according to a broad government reform plan.

The proposed reform would move approximately 5,000 full-time equivalent employees and shift $1.3 billion in funding from the FDA over to the USDA.

HHS also would get a new name — the Department of Health and Public Welfare — and would take over non-commodity nutrition assistance programs from the USDA.
