UPDATE: JUNE 13TH 

In the next step of what may become the most monumental piece of medical legislature,

THE GOVERNOR OF TEXAS SIGNED HB 810!

HB 810 will be effective on 9/1/17  

I express virtually no surprise what so ever that there has been no media coverage of this.*  The only piece of confirming data I can find is on the Texas Legislature site and in articles written by the tireless and noble Patient Warriors, around the world, who have been fighting for their lives and for this for years.

 

HB-810
[original article below]
………………………………………………………………
Around the world, stem cells have been used for therapeutic application for decades, treating incurable illnesses, recovering terminal patients and improving qualities of life of untold numbers.  In some form or another, Rafael Nadal got them…along with Peyton Manning, Jarvis Greene, Kobe Bryant and Dana White and hundreds or thousands of other athletes and weekend warriors but mostly outside the US because they weren’t available here.
Sadly, we in the US were…a little slow…to get the message. Foolishly allowing ourselves to get embroiled in the distracting political, financial and religious controversies; we have not been allowed to treat our sick and dying. Tragically, listening to the uninformed who said: “they are unproven!” despite thousands of studies and trials from around the world, the US stuck to our guns and enjoyed some of the worst medical care in the world.  I wrote this in 2010:
“We are in fact about 8 years behind most of the developed world in stem cell research. The WHO ranks our health system at 37th, our life expectancy is 30th in the world, infant mortality is 34th in the world and this is all with our Health Expenditures as a % of GDP being almost the highest in the world (we are ranked #2).”
Like many before and after him, Gov Perry made some in roads in 2012 but hit the wall of American “backward thinking.” https://repairstemcell.wordpress.com/2012/04/14/texas-oks-experimental-stem-cell-therapy-limits-questions/
Now, Texas, House Bill 810 amended the bill which was “relating to the provision of certain investigational stem cell treatments to patients with certain severe chronic diseases or terminal illnesses and regulating the possession, use, and transfer of adult stem cells; creating a criminal offense,” and passed the Senate, unanimously.
STEM CELLS FOR SCLERODERMA
This is the bill now:

The bill is on its way to the Governor’s office for signature. This has been a LONG time coming.

A hearty congratulations goes out especially to the tireless patient advocates/patient warriors who said: “no more!” and threw off the yoke of servitude to a medical system which no longer served their self-interests. Their efforts and those of many, many others have inexorably, infinitesimally, pushed the needle over time against multiple immovable objects.

What happens next?  There will be chaos, turmoil and scrambling.  There will be resistance and bad mouthing and nay saying…and in the end, Texas industry will likely generate billions in revenue, treat the un-treatable, recover the unrecoverable, extend the lives of those told to get their affairs in order and become THE center of regenerative medical innovation in the US, if not, the world.

I now see that there was media coverage; we just apparently beat them all to the punch.  I am more than pleased that this advance is getting mass media coverage!

NY commits $20M to stem-cell research – Buffalo

In BUSINESS OF STEM CELLS on August 31, 2009 at 12:49 pm

Monday, August 31, 2009, 8:18am EDT

New York plans to invest $20.4 million in stem-cell research.

Gov. David Paterson announced that $5.4 million will be earmarked to recruit research fellows to research institutions in New York. The remaining $15.4 million will be used to establish “multi-institutional research facilities” that will be shared by researchers from across the state.

“Investment in stem cell research is part of our vision to make New York a global leader in the new economy,” Paterson said.

New York State Health Commissioner Richard Daines, who is also the chair of the Empire State Stem Cell Board, said the funding will “ensure the best and the brightest new stem-cell investigators conduct their research in New York state.”

The governor put out two Requests for Applications. More detail on the applications, which are due Dec. 1, is available at the state’s Web site.

General Assembly 2009 Half Time Report

“The governor’s proposed budget (HB1600) was passed on Feb. 12 with several amendments by the House of Delegates. These amendments were created by the House Appropriations Committee and resulted in unsuccessful objections by House Democrats to several harmful amendments in such areas as education (K-12 and higher ed.), stem cell research, energy and water quality improvement. The Senate has decided to wait until at least Feb. 18 before considering the governor’s introduced budget. The Senate wanted to wait until the January revenue data was available and for the details of what Virginia would receive from the recent federal economic stimulus package. The Speaker of the House decided to not wait.”

General Assembly 2009 Half Time Report

By Del. Chuck Caputo (D-67) -Wednesday, February 18, 2009

The 2009 legislative session reached halftime this past week with the event known as crossover. This is when both the Senate and House of Delegates complete work on each chamber’s own legislation with the exception of the state budget. Now, we in the House can only consider the Senate’s bills (and vice versa). About 2,300 bills and resolutions were introduced this year and about half are still alive. So, here’s a rundown of some of the significant pieces of legislation:
