Developments on FY 2012 Budget

The Senate Committee on Appropriations has approved the FY 2012 Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies; Energy and Water Development; and Homeland Security Appropriations bills. Each of these bills contains provisions of interest to ADA members.

WIC: Provides $6.582 billion, compared to $6.734 billion in FY 2011. It is expected that this level will fully fund participation in the program. The decrease from FY 2011 is due to lower program participation rates than originally estimated. This level also provides $60 million for breastfeeding peer counselors.

Food Safety: Provides $2.497 billion for the Food and Drug Administration, as compared to $2.447 billion. FDA is the only non-security agency to receive increased funding in this bill. An increase is provided the Food and Drug Administration to begin implementation of the recently passed Food Safety Modernization Act.

Commodity Supplemental Food Program: Provides $176 million, which fully funds participation.
