Rep. Sherwood Boehlert to receive award from AIBS

Washington, DC--To cap off its 2006 Annual Meeting, the American Institute of Biological Sciences will present House Science Committee Chairman Sherwood Boehlert, R-NY, with an award commending him for his distinguished record of service and his support for the biological sciences.

Boehlert recently announced his retirement after representing his own House district, New York's 24th, for 24 years. He has been a member of the Science Committee for the duration of his congressional career and has chaired it since 2001. During his tenure he has supported a robust national science portfolio and has helped to secure crucial boosts in funding for agencies like the National Science Foundation.

AIBS President Kent Holsinger said, "Science is losing a strong ally in Congressman Boehlert. We are pleased to honor him with this award."

The awards presentation will take place on May 24 at 7 pm at the Westin Grand Hotel in Washington, DC. It will begin this year's AIBS Annual Meeting, which will address the topic "Biodiversity: The Interplay of Science, Valuation, and Policy."
