BIO Letter to Senate Appropriations Committee on Priorities for Fiscal Year 2023 Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act
The value of science and agricultural innovation cannot be understated. The adoption of biotechnology in agriculture and the development of biobased technologies contribute to food security, sustainability, and climate change solutions. Over the past 25 years, it enabled shifts in agronomic practices that led to significant and widespread environmental benefits.
BIO supports public policies centered on innovation to incentivize the adoption of cutting-edge technologies and practices and benefit rural economies. Further, it is crucial that the government establishes risk-proportionate, transparent regulations in a timely manner to maintain America’s global leadership in the life sciences while protecting health and the environment.
