State Bill to Fund UC Riverside Medical School Expansion is Still Alive
To make it into next fiscal year’s state budget, the medical school funding will have to compete with a wide range of other projects and priorities. First-year Gov. Gavin Newsom’s ambitious agenda includes solving California’s housing affordability crisis and providing universal preschool for low-income children.
Traditionally, Inland leaders have groused about the lack of respect and funding the region gets from Sacramento, despite its skyrocketing growth. A new group, Inland California Rising, seeks to focus more attention on the needs of non-coastal areas, and Newsom administration officials spoke of the need to invest in the Inland Empire at the group’s May 10 Riverside conference.
