House draft 2022 spend­ing bill: $86M less for FDA than what Biden re­quest­ed

The House Ap­pro­pri­a­tions Com­mit­tee on Thurs­day evening un­veiled its draft leg­is­la­tion to fund the FDA for next year, re­veal­ing an in­crease of $257 mil­lion for the agency’s non-user fee funds, which is $86 mil­lion less than what Pres­i­dent Biden called for FDA.

Even for an agency that will see to­tal fund­ing, in­clud­ing user fees, of about $6.3 bil­lion, that $86 mil­lion is a large sum that could do a lot to hire new ex­per­tise, up­date in­fra­struc­ture and pur­sue oth­er agency ob­jec­tives that fell by the way­side dur­ing the pan­dem­ic.
