Obama Expresses Opposition to FDA Appropriations Bill

June 28, 2012
The House will use an open amendment process for H.R. 5973, the bill that includes the FDA’s fiscal 2013 appropriations, requiring amendments to be offered on the House floor during the bill’s reading, the House Rules Committee says. The committee met June 21 following the House Appropriations Committee’s June 19 approval of the bill, which would give the FDA $2.481 billion in fiscal 2013 appropriations — about 1 percent less than what it is currently receiving.
