TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas House has approved a bill that would require the University of Kansas Medical Center to start a center to promote research and use of adult stem cells, cord blood and related stem cell therapies.

The bill would prohibit the center from using embryonic stem cells or cells taken from aborted fetal tissue. It also would require the medical center to appoint a director of the center to oversee patient treatment and research.

However, the bill does not include any state funding for the proposed center. The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/14o0kwd ) the Midwest Stem Cell Therapy Center would require $1.1 million to renovate a lab and hire staff and $750,000 annually after that.

The bill now goes to the Senate.
