California's International Stem Cell Collaborations Must Be Based on Scientific Merit, Consumer Group Says
Date:6/18/2008

s associated with these plans? For instance, CIRM's proposed 2007-2008 budget includes a whopping 287 percent increase in travel, from $144,000 to $558,000. Increases of that magnitude demand scrutiny and their value must be adequately justified."

Proposition 71, which created CIRM, passed by 59 percent of Californians in 2004. Consumer Watchdog's Stem Cell Oversight and Accountability Project is working to ensure that California's landmark stem cell research program offers accessible and affordable cures and treatments to the taxpayers who have funded it. The program will sell $3 billion in bonds over a decade to fund stem cell research. Financing charges mean the project, the largest source of stem cell research funding in the world, will cost California taxpayers $6 billion.
