House Passes Drug Safety Bill

By Admin on September 20, 2007 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Under a bill passed Wednesday by the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will have greater power to regulate the safety of prescription medications, including more oversight of drugs that are already on the market.

The bill is expected to pass a Senate vote later this week.
