With respect to federal funding of embryonic stem cell research, my understanding is that the current restriction on funding (to then-existing stem cell lines) was imposed by Executive Order. Congressional attempts to overturn that restriction have been unsuccessful, but all that's required to reverse the Executive Order is a new Executive Order. If I'm right, this is one issue you can take out of the hopper for necessary Congressional action.
