The article reports on the support of U.S. President George W. Bush of the 2008 spending plan of the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA). The Bush administration has proposed a $2 billion budget for FDA for 2008 which consists of appropriated funds and user fees for drugs, biologics, medical devices and other products. However, observers expect a complication for the 2008 budget analysis because of the failure of the Congress to approve most 2007 spending bills.
