FDA appropriations

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

FY 1995 budget for salary and expenses is $905.9 mil., according to conference report language for the agriculture appropriations legislation adopted by the Senate Sept. 28. Conference language approved by the House Sept. 23 allocating $899.4 mil. for FDA salaries and expenses did not include $6.5 mil. in mammography inspection fees. The $163 mil. in general purpose user fees originally contained in the Senate bill were removed after the House passed a resolution authored by House Ways & Means Committee Chair Sam Gibbons (D-FL) declaring the unauthorized user fees in violation of a constitutional requirement that revenue raising measures originate in the House. The 1995 FDA budge "represents an increase of $36.3 mil. to the 1994 level, but a reduction of $18.6 mil. to the overall level the Senate had proposed," Appropriations/Agriculture Subcommittee Chair Dale Bumpers (D-AR) commented; the $36.3 mil. adjustment includes a $23.1 mil. increase in Rx user fees, a $2.7 mil. transfer of funds for the FDA general counsel from Labor/HHS appropriations to the agriculture bill, the $6.5 mil. for mammography inspection fees and about $4 mil. in inflation adjustments, FDA says
