President Floyd copy

This morning, on a 47-1 vote, the Legislature approved the bill that allows for WSU to pursue medicine as an academic discipline. We thank every one of our WSU Impact members who logged on, became a WSU Impact member, and used the interactive tools to take action and lend your voice in support. The next step is the Governor’s signature and to ensure funding to help address the issues surrounding health care shortages in our state.

The state Senate this morning approved the WSU medical school bill 47-1, sending it to the governor.

HB 1559 would authorize Washington State University to pursue medicine as an academic discipline. The bill has seen strong bi-partisan support this year given its potential to address the issues surrounding health care shortages in Washington. The bill passed through the House earlier this month with a vote of 81-17. An identical bill previously passed the Senate 45-4.
