FDA fiscal 1986 appropriations
Continuing resolution passed by Congress just before adjournment in December included $424.3 mil. for FDA, $422.8 mil. for programs and operations and $1.5 mil. for buildings and facilities. The 1986 funding level is $9.5 mil. higher than the 1985 appropriation, although it will fund 60 fewer full-time equivalent positions. Actual funding could be affected by two factors, the agency noted: a clause permitting President Reagan to reduce the appropriation by 0.6%, and the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings Deficit Reduction Act.
