Delay on Action on Pay-for-Eggs Legislation in California

Legislation to allow women to be paid when they provide human eggs for research was put off in the state Senate Health Committee this week.

The proposal (AB2531) by Assemblywoman Autumn Burke, D-Inglewood, was not taken up Wednesday as scheduled. Burke asked that the hearing be postponed because two members of the committee were absent, according to Ruff Allison, a spokesperson for her office.  Often that occurs when a measure does not have sufficient support among the members of the committee who are present.

The bill is expected to be taken up in the committee next Wednesday.
