Hopefully enough to update some of their current technologies...this department above all needs all the help they can get...our lives depend a lot on what is cleared through this office...BD
Although the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is targeted to receive a funding increase in President Bush's proposed budget for fiscal year 2009, the funds may not be enough to ensure that the agency has the resources it needs to effectively monitor drug safety.
Overall, the President's budget freezes spending increases for a majority of federal programs. The FDA looks to gain modest increases, with a proposed funding bump of $130 million. While this appears to be a significant increase, only around $50 million would come from appropriations. The remainder would come from new user fees on generic drugs, generic animal drugs, reinspection and food and animal feed export certification
