Setzler Named House Science Chair

State Rep. Ed Setzler (R-Acworth) was recently named chair of the House Science and Technology Committee.

The committee "is responsible for legislation that promotes the appropriate and safe development and use of science and technological advances in the state," according to the committee's website.

The assignment worries some in the biotech industry, according to a story in Wednesday's  Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

They fear that Setzler, who has led efforts to ban research on embryonic stem cells and sponsored a bill that makes it illegal to implant people with microchips against their will, could impede advances in the industry, according to the AJC.

What are your thoughts about Setzler's new leadership role? Tell us in the comments box below.
