Congress OKs $1 million to run FARAD in 2010

Article

Washington-The Food Animal Residue Avoidance Database will continue to be operational through 2010.

Washington — The Food Animal Residue Avoidance Database (FARAD) will continue to be operational through 2010 after receiving $1 million in funding from Congress.

While the amount still falls far short of the $2.5 million requested by the AVMA Governmental Relations Division (GRD), FARAD is off the endangered list for the first time in several years.

The $1 million appropriation is an increase of nearly $200,000 over 2009.

FARAD was forced to drastically scale back its operation and only was able to remain open in 2008 as a result of last-minute bridge funding from various agencies.
