21 Plain and simple, this legislation will help ensure that providers and their patients have access to high-quality compounded drugs,” said Senate HELP Committee Chairman Tom Harkin (D-IA). “This legislation will improve the safety of compounded drugs by clarifying the oversight responsibilities of the FDA over large-volume compounders and by holding facilities to high quality standards. This bill also calls for an unprecedented tracing system that will track prescription drugs from manufacturing to distribution. I commend the bipartisan spirit that brought this compromise proposal together.” On November 12, the Senate voted 97–1 to advance the Drug Quality and Security Act (H.R. 3204) on a cloture motion—a procedure by which the Senate can vote to place a time limit on consideration of a bill to overcome a filibuster. track-and-trace legislation
