The California Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld California’s $3 billion stem cell agency, which was approved by voters under Proposition 71 in 2004. California Attorney General Edmund G. Brown Jr.’s office defended the measure’s legal challenge. Fifty-nine percent of voters approved the groundbreaking measure in 2004.

Wednesday’s decision frees $3 billion in funding for stem cell research that was stalled by opponents’ frivolous legal challenges. California voters adopted the measure in the wake of the Bush administration’s failure to support research that potentially help people with Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, spinal cord injuries and other serious conditions.

“I pledged to vigorously support stem cell research and today is a victory for California’s voters and medical science,” Brown said. “This decision allows California to take on the groundbreaking scientific research that the Bush administration ignored.”
