Pediatric exclusivity bill markup
Legislation on reauthorizing the pediatric exclusivity provisions is scheduled to be marked up by the House Commerce/Health Subcommittee Sept. 13. Full committee markup is planned for Sept. 20. Rep. Greenwood (R-Pa.) is sponsoring the legislation, with Rep. Eshoo (D-Calif.) as cosponsor. Rep. Waxman (D-Calif.), who cosponsored the original pediatric exclusivity legislation with Greenwood, declined to cosponsor the reauthorization bill and will offer amendments during markup (1"The Pink Sheet" July 23, p. 7)
