Governor Brownback will join KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little and Kansas Board of Regents Chairman Fred Logan, among other officials, at the KU Medical Center to applaud budget enhancements.
A bill passed by the Legislature includes $25 million in state-backed bonding authority for a new health education building, which is estimated to cost $75 million dollars.
KU officials say the building is needed in part to train more doctors. With it, KU will increase the class size by 25 to 200 students.
The university has identified $15 million in internal funds for the project, but needs $40 million more.
