Trump administration proposes removing FDA's authority over tobacco regulation

Posted by

The new agency would still be under the purview of the Department of Health and Human Services. The president's budget request is just a proposal and is unlikely to pass Congress in its current form. The idea of removing tobacco regulation authority, which was granted to the FDA in a 2009 law passed by Congress, from the agency does not have broad support among lawmakers.

Joe Grogan, head of the White House Domestic Policy Council, lamented last year to reporters that tobacco regulation was a "huge waste of time" for the FDA.
