The Trump administration wants to know from business leaders and scientists what regulations are standing the way of biotech innovations, and how the government can help spur new advances.

An all-day "Summit on America's Bioeconomy" held Monday was designed in part to draw attention to a request for information that the White House issued last month to get input on ways that the government can facilitate the development and commercialization of biotech products. "We need your help to get this right," said Michael Kratsios, the administration's chief technology officer.

Deputy Ag Secretary Steve Censky told the 100 business leaders, academics and government officials at the meeting that USDA has "clearly tried to change the paradigm" with the proposed revisions to its biotech regulations.

Keep in mind: Unless President Trump is re-elected his administration is fast running out of time to make any major changes in agency regulations. USDA has made the most progress so far, but its proposal has run into sharp criticism from several industry sectors.
