DescriptionThe Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) has named Senator Saxby Chambliss (R, GA) as a "Legislator of the Year" for 2004-2005.

"BIO commends Senator Chambliss for his leadership as Chairman of the Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry," BIO President Jim Greenwood stated. "The Senator has demonstrated his strong commitment to agricultural biotechnology in the House and the Senate. His advocacy for the expansion of trade opportunities for agricultural biotech products serves his constituents and farmers across the country, well."

"We applaud Senator Chambliss' support for biotechnology research and development," said Georgia Biomedical Partnership President Charles Craig.
