Abstract

Legislation reforming the way new animal drugs are reviewed by the Food and Drug Administration cleared Congress the evening of September 25, 1996, paving the way for increased availability of new medicines to treat animals. The Animal Drug Availablility Act of 1996, broadly supported by veterinary and agricultural groups, will steamline the federal process for approving new animal health products to treat farm animals, poultry and pets. The bill, H.R. 2508, unanimously passed the Senate September 25, 1996, after clearning the House of Representatives in an overwhelming show of bipartisan support the previous day. Administration officials have said the president will sign the bill, which is supported by the FDA.
