ABSTRACT
The article reports on the disapproval of voters to borrow $450 million to fund stem-cell research in New Jersey on November 6, 2007. The political observers have suggested that fiscal concerns might have been the factor of disapproval, since the country is facing $30 billion in debt. The voting was released two weeks after the construction was started on the state's first stem-cell institute in New Brunswick. The institute was financed by $270 million which state lawmakers approved in 2006, while the $450 million was to fund research grants over ten years.
