ABSTRACT
The article reports that California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has authorized a $150 million general fund loan to the state's stem cell research institute. The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine was established in 2004 after voters approved a ballot measure authorizing $3 billion in general obligation bonds to finance medical research using stem cells. A court case by research detractors has kept the state from access to public debt markets until intervention by Schwarzenegger.
