WASHINGTON, D.C. - The majority of the funds to be directed toward foods called for by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in President Barack Obama's proposed fiscal year budget plan for 2014 would come from industry user fees, Dr. David Acheson writes in a new blog post for the Leavitt Partners Blog. 

"The President’s proposed fiscal year (FY) 2014 budget has been published, including an FDA request for $4.7 billion," Acheson writes. "As shown on the pie chart below (see linked post), about 24 percent of this is to be directed toward foods. While this is an increase of $821 million over FY 2012 for the whole of FDA, 94 percent, about $770 million, of the funding is to come from industry user fees, including new FSMA fees, a Food Facility Registration, and an Inspection User Fee."
