AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A legislative committee has approved a
proposal requiring state agencies and universities to report on any
stem cell research they are conducting, funding or supporting.

The new bill was proposed by Sen. Steve Ogden, a Bryan
Republican who had placed a provision in the state budget to thwart
embryonic stem cell research. He said he offered the new bill --
quote -- "to try and find out, frankly, what is going on - because
we as policymakers don't know."

His new bill was approved 5-0 late Tuesday, with all five GOP
members of the Health and Human Services Committee voting for it.
It now goes to the full Senate and could be approved quickly under
a process designed to speed through non-controversial measures.
