Will State Voters Continue to Pour Money into Stem Cell Research?
January 26, 2018
(NPR) – Today, 14 years and billions of dollars later, that California agency is running out of money, and backers of stem cell research plan to ask voters in the state to pony up for round two. The projected ask this time: $5 billion, in a measure the backers hope to place on the California ballot in 2020. For voters this time, there will be one major question, says Zev Yaroslavsky, a former member of the Board of Supervisors for Los Angeles County, and now a specialist in state politics and government at UCLA: “The public will want to know,” he says, “what they’ve gotten for their money.”
