A proposal passed on Tuesday will lead to the retirement of a majority of the remaining chimpanzees used for research in the U.S., a major move for research facilities around the country.
The proposal, which was drafted by a committee at the National Institutes for Health (NIH), will rescue over 300 chimps from research labs and release them into a Louisiana sanctuary with trees and room to play.
