A BILL

To direct that funds appropriated to the Department of Defense for fiscal year 1996 for certain medical research relating to illnesses suffered by veterans who served in the Persian Gulf War shall be obligated in accordance with peer review procedures of the Food and Drug Administration.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. PEER REVIEW PROCEDURES TO BE USED FOR CERTAIN DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE MEDICAL RESEARCH.

    (a) PROCEDURES TO BE USED- The Secretary of Defense, in determining the manner in which to obligate the funds referred to in subsection (b), shall direct that the peer review guidelines to be used for such purpose shall be those applicable to the Food and Drug Administration (under 21 CFR chapter 1, part 56), rather than the peer review procedures otherwise applicable to the Army.

    ((b) COVERED FUNDS- The funds to which subsection (a) applies are those funds specified for a treatment protocol and related studies for Desert Storm-syndrome affected veterans in the third proviso under the heading ‘DEFENSE HEALTH PROGRAM’ in title VII of the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 1996 (Public Law 104-61; 109 Stat. 649).
