BIO President and CEO Jim Greenwood to Moderate Discussion

2013 BIO International Convention
WASHINGTON--Co-chairs of President Obama’s National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform and co-founders of The Campaign to Fix the Debt, former Senator Alan Simpson and Erskine Bowles will engage in a lively Keynote Luncheon panel titled “Debt, Taxes, Government Services and Politics—Is There a Way Out?”, on Wednesday, April 24th, 12:00 – 2:00 p.m. at the 2013 BIO International Convention in Chicago, Illinois. Hosted by the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO), the Convention brings together life science leaders and policy makers from around the globe looking to address the biotech industry’s most pressing issues.

“Debt, Taxes, Government Services and Politics—Is There a Way Out?”
Moderated by BIO’s President & CEO Jim Greenwood, the panel will draw from Senator Simpson’s and Mr. Bowles’ inside the beltway knowledge and experience to discuss their non-partisan movement to put America on a better fiscal and economic path.

“Decisions about federal spending, deficits and tax policies have a huge impact on the environment in which our BIO member companies do the hard work of biotech innovation. Few are as knowledgeable about budget issues as Mr. Bowles and Senator Simpson. We look forward to hearing their ideas for how to ensure a strong economic future for America without compromising biotechnology's ability to move faster to heal, fuel and feed the world,” said BIO President & CEO Jim Greenwood.

Senator Simpson first joined the United States Senate in 1979 and was elected by his peers to the position of the Assistant Majority Leader in 1984 and served Majority Leader Bob Dole in that capacity until 1994. He completed his final Senate term on January 3, 1997.

Mr. Bowles, best known for his roles as SBA Administrator, Deputy Chief of Staff and Chief of Staff under President Clinton, worked at the direction of Clinton and with the Republican House of Representatives and Senate to negotiate the first balanced budget in a generation.

Wednesday’s Keynote session is sponsored by Amgen.

The Wednesday Keynote Luncheon is open to attendees who have registered as Convention Access or higher and to credentialed members of the media.
