Governor says he won’t back UCR medical school
The Press-Enterprise

California Gov. Jerry Brown said Friday he’s not prepared to support funding the UC Riverside medical school at a time when the state still faces a $9 billion deficit. Brown asserted that position during a talk at The Press-Enterprise that ranged from his tax proposal to high-speed rail, pension reform and driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants. “I’m not ruling it out, but I’m not ruling it in right now,” Brown said of funding for the medical school. “We’ve got to get our house in order before we expand.”
