Legislation that would ban the artificial production of human embryos for medical research or any other purpose fell one vote short Thursday of breaking the grip of extended debate and disappeared from the 2004 Legislature's agenda. A motion to invoke cloture and move to a vote on whether to advance the measure from the first stage of floor consideration won 32-12 approval.

Legislation that would ban the artificial production of human embryos for medical research or any other purpose fell one vote short Thursday of breaking the grip of extended debate and disappeared from the 2004 Legislature's agenda. A motion to invoke cloture and move to a vote on whether to advance the measure from the first stage of floor consideration won 32-12 approval. But that was one count shy of the 33 required to end the long debate that consumed the Legislature's three-hour morning session. An earlier effort to send the bill, LB602, back to the Judiciary Committee for further consideration failed on an 11-30 vote.
