What happened to the stem cell resarch bill?

Legislation moving stem cell research forward is still stalled in the Senate.

Last fall, a deal was reached between Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA) and Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) that the bill would be one of the first priorities in the Senate in 2006. So far, it hasn't reached the Senate calendar.

The legislation passed the House of Representatives last summer by a vote of 238-194. It only needs to pass the Senate, which it will if given a vote, to move on to the White House for the president's signature. Maybe it's time to contact your Senators, and put the heat on again.
