Biotech will lose a champion in Washington. Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA), who received BIO’s Innovator in Biotech Award in April (pictured), and is a 2018 recipient of Georgia Bio’s Legislator of the Year award last week announced he will retire at the end of the year due to health issues. We wish him all the best and thank him for his service to the country and his commitment to farmers and to innovation.
