"Legislative Battle Over Cosmetics Regulations May Not Be Pretty"

"Industry and public health groups are gearing up for a fight over the regulation of cosmetics, as the House begins consideration of sweeping Food and Drug Administration legislation."

"The House Energy and Commerce Committee will hold a legislative hearing on an FDA user fee authorization draft bill in the coming weeks. The draft, only parts of which are available now, will include language to address how the FDA regulates cosmetics, said Debbee Keller, a spokeswoman for the committee."
