Questioning State Regulation for Cryonics

From the Arizona Capitol Times, a discussion and overview of current state government attempts to regulate cryonics providers - specifically Alcor in this case. The small cryonics industry has operated quietly, legally and safely in the US for decades, but events in 2003 led to this current flurry of potential legislation and regulation. An entry from Rand Simberg's blog made at the time hits all the relevant points about legislator hubris and special interests. The cryonics industry can potentially serve a useful purpose in the fight against aging (and you can find out more at Cryonet), but not if it's stifled, buried by legislation and misunderstanding.
