NJ Rev Stat § 34:1B-21.32 (2013) What's This?

34:1B-21.32 Findings, declarations relative to certain stem cell, life sciences, and biomedical research.

2.The Legislature finds and declares that:

Millions of people suffer from currently incurable diseases and injuries, and recent medical science, including the use of new regenerative medical therapies such as the use of a special type of human cells called "stem cells," provides indications that cures and treatments for certain of these diseases and injuries can be developed;

The development of such cures and treatments will improve New Jersey's health care system, can reduce long-term health care costs, and can benefit the New Jersey economy by creating projects, jobs and therapies;

The State of New Jersey is home to many of the leading life sciences, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies and the State seeks to preserve its leading role, attract investment, attract scientists, enhance research and, toward that end, seeks to finance facilities for entities involved in stem cell research, life sciences and biomedical research;

Financing stem cell research facilities and life sciences and biomedical research facilities will substantially further the public interest and can most economically be financed through a bond issue; and

The State of New Jersey has determined that bonds issued by the New Jersey Economic Development Authority are the most desirable means to provide funding for such facilities and projects.
