The Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act

The Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act

John Smith

Soon after the Easter break, the Senate will debate and vote on the 2007 version of the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act. This latest attempt to resurrect Republican social responsibility has percolated since January. At that time, the House passed identical legislation as part of Nancy Pelosi's First Hundred Hours of the new Democratic Congress.
