The Government Roadmap: 2012 and Beyond
Tuesday, September 25 | 11:45 am - 1:00 pm
After a tumultuous summer and fall on Capitol Hill, what is next for biofuels and algae? What about funding? The Defense Authorization Act? The Farm Bill? What do we expect after the 2012 election, and how will the industry continue to be supported by the U.S. government and what are the expectations beyond 2012?
