To support congressional work on user fee authorizing legislation and other FDA-related drug, device, and biological product provisions, Congressional Research Service analysts have prepared tables comparing provisions in the Senate passed bill that originated in the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions and the House suspension document that originated in the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.
• S. 3187, the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act, passed by the Senate on May 24, 2012; and
• H.R. 5651, the Food and Drug Administration Reform Act of 2012, revised and dated May 24, 2012, as posted on the websites of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce and the House Committee on Rules.1
CRS has also provided brief summaries of relevant provisions in current law, mostly the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), but also the Public Health Service Act (PHSA), the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), and several others as noted.
