ABSTRACT
The article reports on the bill HR 2764 signed by President George W. Bush for appropriations to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) during fiscal year 2008. The law, which allocates more than $1.7 billion, bans FDA from utilizing the funding for the agency's Reagan-Udall Foundation. Moreover, some Congress members have expressed concern over the influence of FDA on the foundation.
