A bill that would give the FDA a $50 million increase to its 2012 budget, if approved, could reduce the pressure on talks between the agency and the industry over medical device user fees. "It gives the FDA a little bit more breathing room to negotiate with industry. And it takes some of the pressure off industry to agree to user fee levels that are greater than it would care to have to pay," said Mark McCarty, Washington editor at Medical Device Daily.
