ďROMANíS LAW: First Hearing Set
March 20, 2010 by diverdonreed
FIRST HEARING: RENEW ROMANíS LAW, HELP END PARALYSIS!
Mark your calendar! Tuesday, April 13, Room 4202, 1:30 PM, Sacramento Capitol
Dear Supporter of Research for Cure:
We need a letter from you. Why? Californiaís Roman Reed Spinal Cord Injury Research Act of 1999 (named after my paralyzed son) is up for renewal this year. This law paid for the first state-funded embryonic stem cell research in America, re-insulating damaged spinal nerves. Laboratory rats so badly paralyzed they could only drag themselves are scampering now; the study may go to human trials this Summer with Geron. The same research may also help cure Spinal Muscular Atrophy, (SMA, a vicious condition which kills children, often before the age of two), Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and other disorders.
The renewal bill has its first hearing April 13th, 1:30, Sacramento Capitol, Room 4202. Come if you can; support us with letters and email, even if you cannot join us in person. Remember, if a bill is defeated in just one committee, it is dead. So help us now.
Please write to: Assemblyman William Monning, Assembly Health Committee Chair, California State Assembly, State Capitol Sacramento, CA 95814, with CC e-mail to: email@example.com, and the committee members below.
ďRomanís LawĒ has helped train new scientists with fellowship grants, and assisted veterans to develop new approaches, from a variation of the Petri dish to pioneering new methods of rehabilitation and repair. In addition to 175 published scientific papers, two patents pending which may advance the biomedical industry, and several major scientific breakthroughs, our research brought new money to California.
