Please help! JP2MRI is supporting the passage of the Iowa Regenerative Medicine Tax Credit bills currently being considered in the Ways and Means Committee of the Iowa legislature. This proposed legislation, House File 240 and companion Senate File 269, is critical for small, non-profit Institute's such as theirs. These bills will serve as an incentive for donors to support Iowa non-profits that are directly involved in conducting pro-life based ethical medical research, utilizing only adult stem cells, to find better treatments and cures for a variety of diseases. This important research will impact children, elderly and veterans all across Iowa and our country. Passage of these bills will allow for biotechnology growth in Iowa and help with job creation, and its impact will be felt on various markets including the veterinary industry, agriculture and healthcare.
We need you to contact your respective legislator and members of the Ways and Means Committee in the House and Senate to let them know you support these bills. Also, please contact House Majority Leader, Chris Hagenow and Senate Majority Leader, Bill Dix, to tell them you would like the bills brought to the floor for a vote. Your voice makes a difference and needs to be heard. Thank you for your assistance and support!
