Call on Congress to give the same tax benefits to clean, healthy, renewable wind energy that they do to dirty fossil and nuclear fuels.
ADUFA, PAMTA, and FDA Guidance #213
The Animal Drug User Fee Reauthorization Act of 2013 (ADUFA) requires that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reports annually on how many antibiotics are sold for use on industrial farms. Thanks to ADUFA, we know that eighty percent of antibiotics sold in the U.S. are used for animal agriculture. Unfortunately, we do not know much else about these sales. ADUFA is currently up for reauthorization in Congress. However, on March 20, the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee did not add new data-reporting requirements to ADUFA in its markup.
As health care professionals, we are disappointed that Senator Baldwin and the HELP committee did not add improved data collection requirements to ADUFA.
Antibiotic-use in animal agriculture is a risk to human health
