H.R. 3580 (110th): Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007

This was a vote to pass H.R. 3580 (110th) in the House. This vote was taken under a House procedure called “suspension of the rules” which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. Votes under suspension require a 2/3rds majority. A failed vote under suspension can be taken again.

President of the United States George W. Bush signed the Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007 (FDAAA), September 27, 2007. This law reviewed, expanded, and reaffirmed several existing pieces of legislation regulating the FDA. These changes allow the FDA to perform more comprehensive reviews of potential new drugs and devices.
