Sequester Withholding of FDA User Fees Irks Industry

Hamburg said industry members were surprised their payments to the FDA were subject to sequester cuts; the companies expect the money to be used for work.

It also remains unclear what will happen with the user fee money that has been cut and can’t be used by the FDA. Kansas Republican Rep. Kevin Yoder asked whether the money would be returned to the companies or saved for the FDA to use at a later date.

Hamburg noted that question “is still being resolved at higher levels” than herself.
