KENNEDY ON THE PASSAGE OF FDA BILL
Today, Senator Edward M. Kennedy, Chairman of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, released the following statement in response to the passage of the Food and Drug Amendments Act of 2007.
"This important bill should give every American greater peace of mind every single day -- every time we eat, take our medicine or see our doctor. Today's action is a major victory for patients, medical progress, and every family that relies on the FDA for safe food and medicine. The legislation the Senate approved today renews our commitment to protecting the health of American families from potentially dangerous drugs and contaminated food."
