House approves FDA fast track for battlefield treatments
The U.S. House of Representatives yesterday approved a measure that would create a fast track at the FDA for medical devices and drugs intended for treating battlefield injuries, a day after passing a nearly $700 billion defense policy bill that would have allowed Defense Dept. to approve the treatments without the FDA’s participation.

Blog Post: Supreme Court makes momentous decision on Minimum Unit pricing in Scotland
Today the Supreme Court has ruled that Minimum Unit Pricing (MUP) for alcohol is legal. This is a momentous decision, following five years of legal challenge led by the Scotch Whisky Association. It means that the Scottish Government can now implement MUP and allow a potentially game-changing alcohol policy to finally be introduced. After years of public debate on the merits and politics of MUP, we may lose sight of the basic principle behind it. MUP establishes a minimum price below which a unit of alcohol can be sold. It is not a new tax on alcohol, and – unlike alcohol taxes – it applies equally regardless o...

This rhetorical signature both certified Trump's authenticity as a change candidate to a constituency eager for the disruption of politics as usual and now complicates his ability to govern in a political system still accustomed to those conventions.
