[from the Examiner K Street page and Beltway Confidential]

The Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO), under the leadership of former Republican congressman Jim Greenwood of Pennsylvania, has beefed up on Democratic lobbyists this year. BIO has retained lobbying firm Johnson, Madigan, Peck, Boland & Stewart, including the services of Jeff Peck -- formerly the Senate Democrats' general counsel on the Judiciary Committee -- and Peck's colleagues Sheila Murphy and Jonathon Jones, former top staffers to senators Amy Klobuchar, D.-Minn., and Tom Carper, D-Del. BIO has also hired the lobbying firm Bryan Cave LLP, including former Clinton White House lawyer Broderick Johnson.
