This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet
House-Senate conference committee on FY 2000 Agriculture appropriations agrees to set FDA budget at about $1.19 bil., below the level approved by the House but above that passed by the Senate (1"The Tan Sheet" Aug. 9, In Brief). The overall appropriations measure has not come out of conference yet, however, as the committee has stood in recess since Sept. 22, stalled by disagreements over agricultural issues. No date has been set for resuming negotiations
