Clinton proposes 18% increase in FDA funding

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The FDA's resource problems may be easing slightly. President Clinton's federal budget proposal for 2000 includes a hefty 18% increase which would be the largest addition to the agency's resources in its history. A substantial portion of that increase - $95.5 million - would be used to help pay for implementing the FDA Modernization Act of 1997 (FDAMA) in the area of injury reporting, product reviews and inspections.
