The Press-Enterprise

The bid to secure state funding for UC Riverside’s Medical School took another step forward this week when a proposal to provide $15 million in ongoing funding was placed in the state budget, according to Riverside’s representatives in Sacramento. The line item for the funding passed an Assembly’s Budget Subcommittee late Wednesday, May 22, and a Senate Budget Subcommittee on Thursday morning, according to a press release issued Thursday afternoon by state Sen. Richard Roth and Assemblyman Jose Medina, both D-Riverside.
