The vote was 89-3 on the motion to end debate on the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation ACt (S. 3187).

A week earlier the House approved the bill and sent the amended version back to the Senate.

The legislation reauthorizes certain FDA programs and expands a user-fee program in order to speed up the FDA's approval process for certain drug and medical device applications.
