Texas representative files bill to prohibit human cloning in universities

More than 10 years after the Human Cloning Prohibition Act failed to pass at the federal level, state Rep. Richard Raymond, D-Laredo, has filed a bill proposing the prohibition of human cloning at institutions of higher education. Raymond’s bill would amend the Texas Education Code to prohibit cloning of humans and create a civil penalty of $10 million for each violation at an institution.

Institutions that violate the possible law would become ineligible to receive state funds, according to the text of the bill.
