Senate-Passed Bill Addresses Drug Shortage

By a vote of 96-1, the U.S. Senate passed a bipartisan measure May 24 to authorize user fees for the Food and Drug Administration. The measure is important to hospitals because it includes several CHA-supported provisions to mitigate the current drug shortage. The House, which is in recess this week, is expected to pass the measure next week when it returns to Washington, D.C., on May 30.
