ALEXANDER STATEMENT ON PASSAGE OF THE FDA REVITALIZATION ACT

Posted on May 9, 2007

“This bill is the biggest drug safety reform in a decade, and I’m proud to support it. Its provisions will: Help the FDA do a better job approving and monitoring prescription drugs and medical devices; encourage the research and development of medical treatments for children; encourage research and development for new antibiotics to combat drug resistant infections; and allow the importation of pharmaceuticals as long as the Secretary of Health and Human Services certifies that the drugs are safe and will save Americans money.”
