Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) expressing concern about providing compensation to officials at the state stem cell agency, California's Institute of Regenerative Medicine has approved a $150,000 salary for Robert Klein, chair of the agency's Independent Citizenâs Oversight Committee. Meanwhile, Schwarzenegger on Tuesday nominated Duane Roth, a member of the Independent Citizen's Oversight Committee, to be the agency's next vice chair.
