Prop. 14 would allow the state to sell bonds to raise money to keep open the state’s own stem cell agency, the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, established in 2006 (after the feds decided not to fund stem cell research). This new bond continues the program in the hopes of finding cures to Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, strokes, epilepsy, and other brain and central nervous system diseases – all well worth supporting.
