State Legislative Hearing May 16 on Stem Cell Measure

Legislation to tighten controls on the California stem cell agency is scheduled for a hearing May 16 in the state Senate Appropriations Committee, where it is expected to be approved.

The measure would then go to the Senate floor for a vote before moving on to the Assembly.

The bill, SB18, has bipartisan support. The chair and co-chair of the Senate Health Committee – Deborah Ortiz, D-Sacramento, and George Runner, R-Antelope Valley -- are co-authors.

For more on the measure, see the earlier items on this blog: “Vote Again (4-15)”, “Looking For Analysis (4-19)” and “Ho-hum (4-21).
