June 2, 2020

The Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO), along with the 27 members of the Council of State Bioscience Associations (CSBA), urge Congress to support the Advancing Emergency Preparedness Through One Health Act and advance legislation directing the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to develop a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to streamline the regulatory oversight of animal biotechnology.
