State governments as a source of funding?

Postby JoeStrout » Wed Jul 25, 2007 10:32 pm

The recent appears to be false, but it raises an interesting notion. Should we be looking to state governments as a possible source of funding?

With stem cell research, for example, when the federal government vehemently dropped the ball, a number of state governments stepped up and provided their own research funding. Perhaps the same could apply here.

My own state is Colorado, which has a $7B general fund. I think California's is over $100B, but even so, we're only talking a couple million to get WB-7 up and running — that should be relatively small change even to an economy the size of Colorado's.

In most states, it's possible for a constituent to get an appointment with their governor. In ten minutes or so, how far do you think we could get in expressing the promise and potential of this research? Far enough for them to tell their staffers to look into it further? Or are we just going to get a smile, a handshake, and mentally lumped into the loony bin?

I hold great hope your speculation turns out to be correct. The fact energy issues are getting so much press lately could certainly work to our advantage, what better spotlight than a presidential race. Framing the situation in that context really puts an amount of pressure to have WB7 be completed in a very short time frame. Here's to hoping it can be completed quickly.
