UCR Med School: $15 Million In Budget Package
The Press-Enterprise

The state spending plan crafted by Gov. Jerry Brown and legislative leaders includes $15 million for UC Riverside’s school of medicine, after budget writers told UC to allocate the money out of a $125 million increase designated for the system. This week’s compromise means the medical school is poised to finally receive long-sought state assistance. The approach has the support of the Brown administration, which did not include any money for the school in its January spending proposal or May revision.
