Money to expand UC Riverside’s medical school and add new judges is part of the new California budget approved Thursday, June 13, by lawmakers in Sacramento.

The $215 billion spending plan for the fiscal year starting July 1 authorizes expansion funding for the school, likely in the neighborhood of $80 million to $100 million once design work is done. Ongoing support for the bigger school will be determined later.
