Testimony of Kay Holcombe, Senior Vice President, Science Policy, Biotechnology Innovation Organization

What an honor it is to speak to you today on behalf of the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) about the Biosimilars User Fee Act reauthorization. This Committee planted the seed that has grown into multiple user fee programs that provide FDA with a significant portion of the resources it needs to ensure that patients have timely access to safe and effective new drugs and biologics, generic drugs, biosimilars, and medical devices. This Committee also tilled the ground and successfully produced, with an overwhelming bipartisan House vote, the legislation that established an FDA pathway for the approval of biosimilars – the Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act (BPCIA). BIO was an early and strong supporter of this legislation to create a facilitated and balanced pathway for greater competition in the biologics marketplace.
