How to Win the Public Policy Debate, and the Annual Government Agency Funding Battles for the Bioeco


PLUS: 15 Steps to Lobbying Successfully for Your Cause and 11 Fatal No-No’s

This article was published on July 11, 2018 in Biofuels Digest.

Everyone involved in the bioeconomy – companies, entrepreneurs, visionaries, vendors, employees, and local communities – should be aware of, keep track of, and speak up for their interests about public policy issues that affect the bioeconomy.

This is a bottom line issue. It’s a jobs issue. It’s also a local tax revenue and economic development issue. And it’s a global competitive issue.

That's because a single change to an existing public policy — say, adding or removing an economic incentive, tax deduction, production credit, accelerated depreciation, research and development or incubator program, grant, or low-interest loan guarantee — can create or eliminate markets, turn a profitable product into a loser, and launch or kill a promising project.

I am a registered lobbyist who has lobbied on and off for 40 years on issues affecting agriculture, energy, the environment, and the bioeconomy.

I often am stunned by how few companies in the bioeconomy industry and, in particular, how few communities that can benefit from bioeconomy projects, give adequate – or any – attention to the funding changes, threats, and opportunities that arise with each state and Congressional legislative session.

That's why I have written an article that was just published by Biofuels Digest. The purpose of the article is to provide tips on how every person reading the article can become an effective advocate for the bioeconomy at the local, state, and federal public policy levels.

I will hope you will find the article and its tips of use. It can be viewed at: http://www.biofuelsdigest.com/bdigest/2018/07/11/how-to-win-the-public-policy-debate-and-the-annual-government-agency-funding-battles-for-the-bioeconomy/.
