Petty House leadership also pees on Taxpayers, Sick People

There was to be a House Ways and Means Committee hearing this morning on SR20, which among other things would limit how the General Assembly can spend money in a supplemental budget (education, rainy day fund, debt relief and tax refunds). The hearing was mysteriously canceled and no one knows why.

Now its reported that Sen. Shafer’s Saving the Cure Act was killed by inaction in the House Science and Technology Committee.


  1. StevePerkins says:

    Wow, I didn’t even realize there anything particularly “controversial” about Sen. Shafer’s bill. Is this “Science” committee not familiar with the difference between embryonic stem cell and adult ones?

    Maybe Shafer should just stick to using the verbiage of “cord blood” and “marrow”, rather than the more technically descriptive language of “adult stem cells”. Sometimes it’s easier to wordsmith around people’s ignorance than it is to educate it away.

  2. Demonbeck says:

    Shafer’s bill would also allow the harvesting of stem cells from amniotic fluid – which is not harmful to the fetus as well.

    I don’t know if that makes them embryonic stem cells, but they certainly are not adult stem cells.

    Did you see the schedule for today? Could it have just been a scheduling conflict? Not everything is a conspiracy…

    Not to mention, I still can’t figure out how you just tied those two pieces of legislation…

    There was nothing in common about those bills other then they were Senate bills killed by the house under mysterious circumstances.
