Public Citizen urges Senators to oppose Amendment SA 2130 to the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act (S. 3187), introduced by Senator Burr. This amendment would greatly politicize the process for negotiating user-fee agreements between the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the drug and medical device industry, undermining the integrity of the process in ways that could threaten prescription drug and medical device safety.
