BIO hosted their annual Legislative Day Fly-In this past April 3-4, 2019.  The two-day event convened biotechnology executives from across the country in Washington, D.C. for legislative briefings and advocacy.

RI Bio and other members of the Council of State Bioscience Associations (CSBA) engaged with Members of Congress along with their senior staff on the most important legislative policy issues facing the biotechnology industry.
