K&L Gates Senator Mark Udall

Dear ABO Colleagues:

Senator Mark Udall (D-CO), is a critical leader in the Senate and most importantly sits on the Armed Services and Energy and Natural Resources committees. The Senate Armed Services committee is actively engaged in mark-ups for the National Defense Authorization Act, a key funding source of the DoD and the developing biofuels industry. K&L Gates, our ABO partner in DC, is hosting a Distinguished Speaker event featuring Senator Udall on June 14, 2012. The invitation is below.

This is not a fundraising event – I would definitely encourage you and your colleagues to consider attending this event if you are in the DC area at that time and show support for the ABO and the algae industry.
