Gov. Chris Gregoire's proposed budget does not include $70.8 million for a new medical school building in Spokane.
Marty Brown, the state's director of the Office of Financial Management, told The Spokesman-Review that the proposed Riverpoint Biomedical and Health Sciences Building did not make the governor's capital budget list.
The governor's long-term capital spending plan doesn't have new money for a WSU-Spokane Health Sciences Building through the year 2021.
Rich Hadley, president of Greater Spokane Inc., said they will meet with legislators around the state to stress the need for more doctors to keep up with the state's growing population.
