TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The University of Kansas will ask for $30 million in state funds to help erect a new medical education building.
The university says the building will cost an estimated $75 million. It will be built at the University of Kansas School of Medicine campus in Kansas City, Kan.
The Kansas Board of Regents will consider the request along with other funding requests from all public universities at its June 21 meeting. The board will send its final budget request to Gov. Sam Brownback by October.
Kansas officials say the current medical education building is too small and doesn't meet accrediting standards.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/KXiMDL ) Kansas will provide $30 million in private funds and revenue bonds, and use $15 million from a medical resident refund.
