The article reports that the U.S. House of Appropriations Committee had to address many amendments for a bill that addresses funding for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other pertinent issues for fiscal 2013. The Committee has reportedly managed a successful voice vote on the legislation, which would slash FDA spending by 16 million U.S. dollars. The funding level allegedly includes several common-sense reforms to initiatives such as food program for the poor.
