Public Citizen urges Senators to oppose Amendment SA 2132 to the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act (S. 3187), introduced by Senator Coburn. This amendment would weaken prescription drug and medical device safety by offering annual financial bonuses to Food and Drug Administration (FDA) scientific reviewers in exchange for speedier reviews of drugs and devices.
