Reconciling appropriations

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

AdvaMed President Pam Bailey will meet with Office of Management & Budget Director Josh Bolten July 28 to discuss the allocation of needed funds for the medical device user fee program. The program has received $1 mil. for the fiscal 2004 administration request and an additional $10 mil. through a Senate bill. According to the 1Senate Committee report, "the fiscal year 2004 budget request does not even come close to the second-year amount necessary to meet the requirements of the law." Under MDUFMA, the program would need to be given $30 mil. in FY 2005 to meet requirements. The Committee noted that it is "extremely disappointed by this lack of commitment to MDUFMA, and strongly encourages the FDA to include the necessary appropriation in the fiscal year 2005 budget request"...
