    FDA operations will be limited by budget sequestration if lawmakers don't move to stop an 8.2% automatic cut before March 1, the consulting firm Avalere Health warned. "An underfunded FDA could lead to FDA review clocks being reset or delayed, which would affect a sponsor's ability to obtain product approval -- thus delaying patient access to cutting edge medical innovations," Avalere said in its report.
