The more things change, the more they stay the same (with apologies to <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heraclitus">Heraclitus</a>).  We have spilled much <a href="http://www.wcmlaw.com/blog/Default.aspx?g=posts&amp;t=914">ink</a> (or at least web space) writing on the FSMA and the lack of budgetary clout to support its ambitions.  According to recent <a href="http://www.capitalpress.com/newest/mp-food-safety-update-012012">reports</a>, an additional $1.5 billion is required to fully fund the FSMA's lofty ambitions.  We think it is doubtful, in the current political and economic climate, that the funding will arise (unless, of course, there's a major food borne illness catastrophe).  In the meantime, the FSMA will largely remain a toothless tiger.
