Sequestration Impacts FDA’s Ability to Deliver New Innovations to Allergy & Asthma Patients
On May 30, 2013 @ 4:04 pm In All Articles
Federal government sequestration cuts have begun. Sequestration is the employment of automatic, across-the-board spending cuts in the face of annual budget deficits. As members of the Alliance for a Stronger FDA, we (AANMA) have concluded that the FDA’s public health responsibilities cannot be accomplished with its existing budget, particularly post-sequestration.
Impact To You:
Act Now & Speak Your Mind:
You can help stop this assault on FDA allergy and asthma programs. Please contact your member of Congress and urge your Senators and Representatives to: (1) stop the unprecedented sequestration cuts to FDA user fees and, (2) voice your concern over the $209 million in FDA sequester cuts that threaten to delay and development of new allergy and asthma therapies that would help the 50 million Americans who have been diagnosed with these diseases.
