IL Gov. Blagojevich Awards $2 Million to Fund ESCR

Gov. Rod Blagojevich awarded $10 million in state grants Monday to encourage stem-cell research and said he will look for ways to continue funding even if lawmakers refuse to support it.
. . .
Though the governor sought to play up the political significance of his action, only a fifth of the $10 million can be used for the controversial embryonic stem-cell research opposed by conservatives. Many Republicans and Democrats support adult stem-cell research, which doesn't have federal funding restrictions.
