A bill introduced by Senators Henry Waxman of California and Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts would give the FDA regulatory authority concerning ads for over the counter drugs. The bill comes in the wake of an FDA advisory about banning cold medicines for children under the age of 6. The new bill would give the federal agency power to impose monetary fines on advertisers. Presently, over the counter drugs fall under the authority of the Federal Trade Commission.
