Pew Supports Bipartisan Efforts to Reform Over-the-Counter Drug Regulation
The Pew Charitable Trusts sent a letter May 17 to Senators Johnny Isakson (R-GA) and Bob Casey (D-PA) thanking them for their bipartisan efforts to reform the over-the-counter (OTC) monograph system. The senators are considering draft legislative language that incorporates six principles Pew and other public health groups have identified to achieve greater OTC regulatory efficiency.
Pew also sent a joint letter with five public health organizations supporting the language and expressing hope that it will be included in the Food and Drug Administration Reauthorization Act of 2017.
