June 24, 2009
Governor Rick Perry signs state budget and Texas A&M Health Science Center secures additional $16.
The HSC campuses in Bryan-College Station and Temple, along with the new Round Rock campus set to open in fall 2009, will benefit from the infusion. A total of $45 million will support the college's growth during the next two years.
Lawmakers also allocated $1 million to support the Biosecurity and Import Safety initiative to be operated from the HSC-South Texas Center in McAllen. The initiative will address public health issues in a major medical and biosecurity sensitive area along the Texas-Mexico border.
