White House Budget Proposes New E-Cigarette User Fee

Could the  e-cigarette industry  soon start paying a user fee to the FDA?

Maybe, if lawmakers approve the Trump administration's request.  President Donald Trump's  2020 budget plan  proposes a new user fee for e-cigarette manufacturers in order to bolster the FDA's efforts to curb teen vaping.  The White House says the fee could bring in an additional $100 million in funding per year.  Traditional tobacco companies  already pay the FDA annual or quarterly fees, which are capped at $712 million.

Adding the vaping industry to the tab would give the agency more funding to address public health issues, including the youth e-cigarette trend.  It's a topic  outgoing FDA Commissioner  Scott Gottlieb has made a priority during his time leading the agency.  Under Gottlieb,  federal health regulators  have been implementing policies to crack down on e-cigarette makers in an effort to curb what the FDA's called "epidemic" teen vaping levels.  Some of those initiatives include tightening restrictions on  flavored e-cigarette sales ,  targeting retailers  that aren't in compliance and launching national ad campaigns.  It's also  an issue  that has  interested Washington  in recent months.

And  some lawmakers  have already voiced their support for the measure, which would still have to be approved by Congress.
