If we are to achieve a status as a civilized nation among other civilized nations, providing our citizenry with adequate healthcare and sufficient access to that healthcare is a crucial step. Dr E.C. Maltravers Jr [NUP] — 12/01/2023 6:24 PM ((How much is 300,000 florins in GBP £? Just so I can ascertain for future comments)) Josef Kovac — 12/01/2023 10:22 PM Oops. That was a typo. For reference, that line is now updated and the Florin to USD rate is 10:1. Josef Kovac — 12/01/2023 10:25 PM You are more than welcome to table a different type of bill. Klaus Mikaelson — 12/02/2023 12:43 AM This seems straight forward enough, I see no objections on a first reading Aurora — 12/02/2023 9:38 PM So, is this of a business, or government run? Josef Kovac — 12/02/2023 9:39 PM I’m not sure what you mean. Can you rephrase the question? Jakob Karlsson - New Asden — 12/02/2023 11:06 PM I think Aurora means is this a private company doing the research receiving federal grants or is the whole operation state run Josef Kovac — 12/03/2023 12:02 AM It is a federal committee giving grants to private researchers.

Would it be prudent in this bill, already concerning stem cell research, to outline the legal process for the procurement, use, and disposal of stem cells? I would also like to see the NaSCRL empowered to regulate the use of stem cell research to ensure that abuse is not occurring. Josef Kovac — 12/05/2023 11:26 PM What possible abuse are you referring to? I’m not sure why stem cell use would need to be expressively regulated. Braughn F. G. Kryos OP

— 12/06/2023 8:06 AM

For example, the harvesting of these stem cells should be regulated to ensure the safety of the donor, any recipients, and the researcher. Other abuses can come in all shapes and sizes; some ability for the NaSCRL to outline the proper use and to punish those that violate those ethical laws is vitally important to the sanctity of scientific research. Josef Kovac — 12/06/2023 10:37 PM I’m not sure that this is the right place for it, but I will start writing a bill to codify donations ethics. Braughn F. G. Kryos OP

— 12/06/2023 10:38 PM

I appreciate the sentiment, but it was meant as an example. I believe that the NaSCRL should be given some authority to regulate the use of stem cells in research as a whole. Josef Kovac — 12/06/2023 10:40 PM Perhaps. I understand your viewpoint, but am thinking of the best way to implement it. Do you have suggestions? Braughn F. G. Kryos OP

— 12/06/2023 10:43 PM

Perhaps a simple addition under 2.1? "2.1.5 - Establish and publish regulations for the use of stem cells in research, violations of which are punishable by ..." Further suggestion: "violations of which will result in the revocation of and/or permanent disqualifition from all grants mentioned in 2.2" Josef Kovac — 12/06/2023 10:44 PM That could work. I will think over this and amend the bill in 8 hours. Thank you for your suggestions. Josef Kovac — 12/07/2023 2:19 AM Added: “2.1.5 - Establish and publish regulations for the use of stem cells in research. 2.1.6 - Enforce said regulations with fines and denial of grants.” Braughn F. G. Kryos OP
