|Senate Approves "CR/omnibus" Legislation to Fund the U.S. Government Through September 2015|
Late on Saturday, December 13th, the Senate approved the "CR/Omnibus" legislation to fund the U.S. Government through September of next year. This was the legislation passed last week by the House before they adjourned with some last minute scrambling regarding Obama nominees and attempts by some legislators to limit funding to the Department of Homeland Security.

In addition to the language contained in the House Report, there is an accompanying Senate Report (113-164) which has additional instructions. IACP is carefully reviewing this report to ensure the original requests from IACP are still there; however, based on conversations with Senate staff last week, nothing had been removed or changed. IACP will keep you posted on any updates here.

So… we now have clear instructions provided to the FDA regarding how DQSA and compounding oversight is to be managed in the coming year. That provides us with strong rationale to take to Congress any example of the agency's continued attempts to thwart Congressional intent!
IACP will keep you apprised of developments.
