Proposition 14 – Increase Bond Funding for Stem Cell Research

Increase Bond Funding for Stem Cell Research

Proposition 14 is a $5.5 million bond, and ultimately the money for it would come from the state’s general fund. This funding would allow the continuation of stem cell research for treatments of a wide variety of conditions. Funding from the 2004 Proposition 71 brought many world-class scientists to California to research treatments and cures for conditions including cancer, infectious diseases and Alzheimer’s. This proposition also includes a Treatment and Cures Accessibility and Affordability Working Group, which creates policies to address affordability concerns of cures found through this research.

City of Pittsburg
