Klein Profile, Congress Thwarting?

The San Jose Mercury News has an interesting piece by Lisa M. Krieger and Paul Jacobs that profiles Robert Klein, the head of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine. Among other things, it says that he has emerged as one of the most powerful figures in state government.It also says that he was involved in lawsuits with former business partners, a bank, a neighbor, his stepmother and his brother. That might sound scandalous, but the details appear less so.

In the San Francisco Chronicle, another writer, David Duncan raises the possibility that a Republican-dominated Congress might do something to thwart California's stem cell agency. The piece, however, does not name any legislators who might be considering such a move.
