Lawmakers Include $15M for Medical School in Budget
California lawmakers have included $15 million in funding for the UC-Riverside School of Medicine in the new state budget. Sen. Richard Roth (D-Riverside) and Assembly memberÂ Jose Medina (D-Riverside) said that the line item for the funding passed an Assembly Budget subcommittee last week. Roth said the funding would help boost health care services in the region, which has "the most severe shortage of primary care doctors in all of the United States."
