Wisconsin State Policy Advocacy
BioForward is Wisconsin’s advocate for biohealth business issues. We support the development of state policies in Wisconsin that support the health and growth of our member companies, promote our talented workforce and strengthen our already robust Wisconsin research institutions. Learn more about our 2019 state advocacy policies here.
Federal Policy Advocacy
A key value we bring our members is to advocate on behalf of this industry on both a state and federal level. We align our federal policy efforts with our national associations: AdvaMed, the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) and PhRMA. In October 2018, BioFoward released our Wisconsin Biohealth Industry 2018 Economic Impact Report demonstrating that our industry contributed $27b in direct economic output while supporting total jobs of 250,379 in the State of Wisconsin.

BioForward works with member companies and our legislative council to provide our members with the legislative support and representation they need to grow their companies and promote the Wisconsin biohealth industry. View the government affairs committee here.
