``SEC. 741. AUTHORITY TO ASSESS AND USE GENERIC NEW ANIMAL DRUG FEES.

    ``(a) Types of Fees.--Beginning with respect to fiscal year 2009, 
the Secretary shall assess and collect fees in accordance with this 
section as follows:
            ``(1) Abbreviated application fee.--
                    ``(A) In general.--Each person that submits, on or 
                after July 1, 2008, an abbreviated application for a 
                generic new animal drug shall be subject to a fee as 
                established in subsection (c) for such an application.
                    ``(B) Payment.--The fee required by subparagraph 
                (A) shall be due upon submission of the abbreviated

                        abbreviated application was submitted by a 
                        person that paid the fee for such application, 
                        was accepted for filing, and was not approved 
                        or was withdrawn (without a waiver or refund), 
                        the submission of an abbreviated application 
                        for the same product by the same person (or the 
                        person's licensee, assignee, or successor) 
                        shall not be subject to a fee under

                        involving combination animal drugs.--An 
                        abbreviated application for an animal drug 
                        described in section 512(d)(4) and submitted on 
                        or after October 1, 2013, shall be subject to a

                        subsection (c).
                    ``(D) Refund of fee if application refused for 
                filing.--The Secretary shall refund 75 percent of the 
                fee paid under subparagraph (B) for any abbreviated 
                application which is refused for filing.
                    ``(E) Refund of fee if application withdrawn.--If 
                an abbreviated application is withdrawn after the 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 
                substantial work was performed on the application after 
                the application was filed. The Secretary shall have the 
                sole discretion to refund the fee under this 
                subparagraph. A determination by the Secretary 
                concerning a refund under this subparagraph shall not 
                be reviewable.

        $3,175,000 for fiscal year 2018.
    ``(c) Annual Fee Setting; Adjustments.--
            ``(1) 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.
            ``(2) Workload adjustment.--The fee revenues shall be 
        adjusted each fiscal year after fiscal year 2014 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. 
                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).
            ``(3) Final year adjustment.--For fiscal year 2018, the 
        Secretary may, in addition to other adjustments under this 
        subsection, further increase the fees under this section, if 
        such an adjustment is necessary, to provide for up to 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 2019. 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 2018.
            ``(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 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.--Subject to paragraph (2)(C), 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 solely 
        for the process for the review of abbreviated applications for 
        generic new animal drugs.
            ``(2) Collections and appropriation acts.--
                    ``(A) In general.--The fees authorized by this 
                section--

                        collected and available in each fiscal year in

                        appropriation Acts, or otherwise made available

                        drugs (including increases in such costs for an 
                        additional number of full-time equivalent 
                        positions in the Department of Health and Human
