President Obama has signed into law a temporary spending bill (H.J.Res. 117) to fund the government until March 27, 2013 in light of Congress’ failure to reach agreement on the regular appropriations bills before the start of the new fiscal year on October 1, 2012. In addition, on October 5, 2012, President Obama signed H.R. 6433, the FDA User Fee Corrections Act of 2012 (which allows the FDA to collect all generic drug user fees authorized by the recently-enacted FDA Safety and Innovation Act for FY 2013), and H.R. 4223, the Safe Doses Act (which seeks to combat theft of prescription drugs and other medical products).
