That didn't take long. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said he expects to bring to the floor federal funding legislation for embryonic stem cell research (ESCR) before the end this summer, more than a year after the House passed a bill to expand such federally funded research. Inside HigherEd indicates (once you get past the "competitiveness" red herring) the delay has been related to bills on related topics that other senators want to include in the debate. Riddle me this: Why hasn't the floor vote been delayed (or left on the table) by the senator himself?
