New Florida Cryonics Firm Blocked

From the Palm Beach Post (found via Transhumanity), news of a legislative block to the hopes of a new cryonic suspension provider. Local government wants to regulate the business under funeral parlor rules that would effectively prevent cryonic suspensions from being performed. Some pro- and anti-technology views from locals round out the article, but all in all this is a disappointing setback for the nascent cryonics industry as a whole. It could take years to sort this mess out, and the cost would likely be prohibitive to most new cryonics companies.
