Democracy Triggers Congressional Hearing

In response to Jamie Metzl’s article in our spring issue, the House Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Trade will hold a hearing on whether or not genetic modification should be internationally regulated.

The subcommittee is chaired by Brad Sherman (D-CA) and is under the Foreign Affairs Committee. The hearing is open to the public.

Subject: “Genetics and other Human Modification Technologies: Sensible International Regulation or a New Kind of Arms Race?”

Date: Thursday, June 19, 2008

Time: 10 AM

Location: Room 2200 of the Rayburn House Office Building

You can read Metzl’s article for us here. In our most recent issue, genetics expert Henry Greely responded to Metzl’s piece.
