  2. inform the public of the barriers for small companies and academic institutions to deregulate biotech crops,
  3. influence federal policies that have led to the high degree of expensive and intrusive regulations,
  4. examine the options for more streamlined and scientifically based approaches,
  5. discuss the regulation of technologies on the frontier such as CRISPR/Cas and genetically engineered animals, and
  6. provide information that the general public can understand regarding the importance of genetically engineered plants and animals for prosperity and food safety.
