BIO released (see MNT) a new survey of 800 American voters, and perhaps not surprisingly, the voters supported a continued commitment to federal spending on biotech research. A majority (53%) bellieved that support should extend to the Federal government tax policies or direct spending for the industry.
"These numbers are a testament to the life-saving scientifica research being conducted by the biotechnology industry. Every day biotech researchers are working to cure deadly diseases, find cleaner alternative fuels, protect us against the threats of bioterrorism and feed a hungry world. It is reassuring to know that our hard work lines up shoulder-to-shoulder with the priorities of the American people," said Jim Greenwood, CEO of BIO.
