Klein Testifying About State Control of CIRM

Stem cell chairman Robert Klein is testifying this morning about how CIRM has worked with other state agencies, from the treasurer's office to the legislature. The line of questioning is being pursued by Tamar Pachter, deputy attorney general, in an effort to show that state oversight of CIRM does, in fact, exist. One contention of the foes is that CIRM operates so independently that it is unconstitutional. Klein has testified that the legislature, controller's and treasurer's offices and governor's office have all participated in developing various procedures and policies at CIRM.
