Annual BIO Fly In 

Once per year, BioKansas joins with BIO to host the annual Legislative Day Fly-In, inviting biotechnology executives from across the country to come to Washington, D.C., for a day and a half of legislative briefings and advocacy.

Each year, we look forward to another great day of engaging with Members of Congress - and their senior staff - on the most important legislative policy issues facing the biotechnology industry. Attendees meet in small groups with the Congressional Members and senior staff of the attendee’s Congressional Delegation.

BIO will schedule all Congressional meetings for each state's delegation, and provide attendees with a robust legislative briefing prior to their visits on Capitol Hill. Each group will be accompanied by a BIO staff representative on all Hill visits. 

In 2018, the BioKansas delegation met with four of the six Kansas legislators and hit on topics ranging from support of federal One Health funding & initiatives, to passage of the Farm Bill and re-authorization of associated energy title programs, to continuing to support funding, development and associated commercialization of the National Bio- & Agro-defense Facility (NBAF).
