This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

METERED-DOSE INHALERS WITH CFCs WOULD REQUIRE FDA/EPA SIGN-OFF for removal from the market with the provision being equally applicable to Rx and OTC products under a bill (S 1299) introduced by Sen. Tim Hutchinson (R-Ark.) Oct. 21. Hutchinson's bill would require FDA and the Environmental Protection Agency to "jointly certify to the Congress that alternatives to such inhalers are available that, for all populations of users of such inhalers, are comparable in terms of safety and effectiveness, therapeutic indications, dosage strength, costs and retail availability."
