Pharmaceutical Issues

As new bills are introduced in Congress, the AVMA reviews them and prioritizes how the Governmental Relations Division staff should spend its time and resources on working to get them passed or stopped. Below are the bills that the AVMA is working on this Congress in the area of pharmaceutical issues. Be sure to check back periodically for updates or to learn about new bills that have been added to AVMA’s portfolio. Also, sign up for our monthly e-newsletter, The AVMA Advocate, for the latest news and information on federal legislation or regulations impacting the veterinary profession.
