With 2016 coming to a close, state legislatures from coast-to-coast will be bustling with activity in the coming weeks. Legislatures will soon adjourn to begin their 2017 legislative sessions. Some states have already begun prefiling legislation and NABR is actively scanning these bills to analyze any potential impact to biomedical research.
