Stem cell bill stalled in Senate

One year after the House of Representatives passed the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act, it still hasn't seen the light of day in the Senate.

As noted here and here, Sen. Bill Frist (R-TN) stated he would make this bill one of the top priorities this year. After 5 months into the new year, it's still not on the calendar for debate.

Today, supporters of the bill rallied on Capitol Hill urging the Senate to finally take up the measure. The president has threatened to veto the Act if it passes. The Senate should give him the chance to do so since Bush to this day still hasn't vetoed a single bill.
