cited as the ``Animal Generic Drug User Fee Act of 2008''.

    (b) <<NOTE: 21 USC 379j-21 note.>>  Findings.--Congress finds as 
follows:
            (1) Prompt approval of abbreviated applications for safe and 
        effective generic new animal drugs will reduce animal healthcare 
        costs and promote the well-being of animal health and the public 
        health.
            (2) Animal health and the public health will be served by 
        making additional funds available for the purpose of augmenting 
        the resources of the Food and Drug Administration that are 
        devoted to the process for the review of abbreviated 
        applications for the approval of generic new animal drugs.
            (3) The fees authorized by this title will be dedicated 
        toward expediting the generic new animal drug development 
        process and the review of abbreviated applications for generic 
        new animal drugs, supplemental abbreviated applications for 
        generic new animal drugs, and investigational submissions for 
        generic new animal drugs as set forth in the goals identified in 
        the letters from the Secretary of Health and Human Services to 
        the Chairman of the Committee on Energy and Commerce of the 
        House of Representatives and the Chairman of the Committee on

                filing, and was not approved or was withdrawn (without a

                abbreviated application is withdrawn after the 
                application was filed, the Secretary may refund the fee 
                or portion of the fee paid under subparagraph (B) if no

        payable for the fiscal year in which the generic new animal drug 
        product is first submitted for listing under section 510, or is 
        submitted for relisting under section 510 if the generic new 
        animal drug product has been withdrawn from listing and

    ``(c) Adjustments.--
            ``(1) Workload adjustment.--The fee revenues shall be 
        adjusted each fiscal year after fiscal year 2009 to reflect 
        changes in review workload. With respect to such adjustment:
                    ``(A) This adjustment shall be determined by the 
                Secretary based on a weighted average of the change in 
                the total number of abbreviated applications for generic 
                new animal drugs, manufacturing supplemental abbreviated 
                applications for generic new animal drugs, 
                investigational generic new animal drug study 
                submissions, and investigational generic new animal drug 
                protocol submissions submitted to the 
                Secretary. <<NOTE: Federal Register, publication.>>  The 
                Secretary shall publish in the Federal Register the fees 
                resulting from this adjustment and the supporting 
                methodologies.
                    ``(B) Under no circumstances shall this workload 
                adjustment result in fee revenues for a fiscal year that 
                are less than the fee revenues for that fiscal year 
                established in subsection (b).
            ``(2) Final year adjustment.--For fiscal year 2013, the 
        Secretary may further increase the fees to provide for up to

[[Page 122 STAT. 3518]]

        3 months of operating reserves of carryover user fees for the 
        process for the review of abbreviated applications for generic 
        new animal drugs for the first 3 months of fiscal year 2014. If 
        the Food and Drug Administration has carryover balances for the 
        process for the review of abbreviated applications for generic 
        new animal drugs in excess of 3 months of such operating 
        reserves, then this adjustment shall not be made. If this 
        adjustment is necessary, then the rationale for the amount of 
        the increase shall be contained in the annual notice setting 
        fees for fiscal year 2013.
            ``(3) <<NOTE: Deadline. Effective date.>>  Annual fee 
        setting.--The Secretary shall establish, 60 days before the 
        start of each fiscal year beginning after September 30, 2008, 
        for that fiscal year, abbreviated application fees, generic new 
        animal drug sponsor fees, and generic new animal drug product 
        fees based on the revenue amounts established under subsection 
        (b) and the adjustments provided under this subsection.
            ``(4) Limit.--The total amount of fees charged, as adjusted 
        under this subsection, for a fiscal year may not exceed the 
        total costs for such fiscal year for the resources allocated for 
        the process for the review of abbreviated applications for 
        generic new animal drugs.

    ``(d) Fee Waiver or Reduction.--The Secretary shall grant a waiver 
from or a reduction of 1 or more fees assessed under subsection (a) 
where the Secretary finds that the generic new animal drug is intended 
solely to provide for a minor use or minor species indication.
    ``(e) Effect of Failure To Pay Fees.--An abbreviated application for 
a generic new animal drug submitted by a person subject to fees under 
subsection (a) shall be considered incomplete and shall not be accepted 
for filing by the Secretary until all fees owed by such person have been 
paid. An investigational submission for a generic new animal drug that 
is submitted by a person subject to fees under subsection (a) shall be 
considered incomplete and shall not be accepted for review by the 
Secretary until all fees owed by such person have been paid. The 
Secretary may discontinue review of any abbreviated application for a 
generic new animal drug, supplemental abbreviated application for a 
generic new animal drug, or investigational submission for a generic new 
animal drug from a person if such person has not submitted for payment 
all fees owed under this section by 30 days after the date upon which 
they are due.
    ``(f) Assessment of Fees.--
            ``(1) Limitation.--Fees may not be assessed under subsection 
        (a) for a fiscal year beginning after fiscal year 2008 unless 
        appropriations for salaries and expenses of the Food and Drug 
        Administration for such fiscal year (excluding the amount of 
        fees appropriated for such fiscal year) are equal to or greater 
        than the amount of appropriations for the salaries and expenses 
        of the Food and Drug Administration for the fiscal year 2003 
        (excluding the amount of fees appropriated for such fiscal year) 
        multiplied by the adjustment factor applicable to the fiscal 
        year involved.
            ``(2) Authority.--If the Secretary does not assess fees 
        under subsection (a) during any portion of a fiscal year because 
        of paragraph (1) and if at a later date in such fiscal year the 
        Secretary may assess such fees, the Secretary may assess

[[Page 122 STAT. 3519]]

        and collect such fees, without any modification in the rate, for 
        abbreviated applications, generic new animal drug sponsors, and 
        generic new animal drug products at any time in such fiscal year 
        notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (a) relating to the 
        date fees are to be paid.

    ``(g) Crediting and Availability of Fees.--
            ``(1) In general.--Fees authorized under subsection (a) 
        shall be collected and available for obligation only to the 
        extent and in the amount provided in advance in appropriations 
        Acts. Such fees are authorized to be appropriated to remain 
        available until expended. Such sums as may be necessary may be 
        transferred from the Food and Drug Administration salaries and 
        expenses appropriation account without fiscal year limitation to 
        such appropriation account for salary and expenses with such 
        fiscal year limitation. The sums transferred shall be available

        animal drug' and `abbreviated application' mean an abbreviated

        submitted under section 512(b)(2). Such term does not include a
