4 of 5 Mormon Senators Support Stem Cell Research
Two more LDS Senators announced their agreement with Utah Senator Orrin Hatch's support of research using embryonic stem cells. Democrat Harry Reid of Nevada and Republican Mike Crapo of Idaho joined Hatch and Oregon Republican Gordon Smith in urging US President George W. Bush to allow federally-funded research using the cells, which come from human embryos, usually those that will be discarded after fertility procedures. The announcements leave only Utah Senator Bob Bennett undecided on the issue.

LDS Law Professor Named Assistant Attorney General
US President George W. Bush recently named LDS law professor Jay S. Bybee to be Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel in the Department of Justice. If confirmed by the Senate, Bybee will function as the legal advisor to the President and all the executive branch agencies, preparing written opinions and oral advice in response to queries from the Counsel to the President and from the various agencies of the executive branch. Bybee is currently on the faculty of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas' William S. Boyd School of Law.
