Colorado has state legislation around cord blood education that only requires hospitals and obstetricians to distribute information about public donation of cord blood.  The Colorado bill also establishes the Adult Stem Cells Cure Fund.  The fund is an optional donation on state tax returns, and the money raised goes to support the expansion of public cord blood banking efforts in Colorado.  The Colorado bill was enacted 3 June 2008 and became effective 1 Sept. 2008.
