President Signs Omnibus Bill That Leaves Device Funding Flat, Boosts FDA By $135m

Executive Summary

The president has signed a 2018 appropriations bill to cover costs at federal agencies until Sept. 30. It provides budget authority funding (not including user fees) for US FDA's device activities at $330m – the same as in 2017 – but gives a total boost of $135m to the agency, up to $2.9bn. The president warned Congress he signed the bill "only as a matter of national security," because it contains increases in military spending.
