PHOENIX (AP) - An obscure state panel chaired by Gov. Jan Brewer has approved a swap of state trust land that will allow Arizona state University to develop a research and educational facility next to the Mayo Clinic in north Phoenix.

The State Selection Board approved transferring the beneficiary of a similar parcel of state trust land currently benefiting universities to K-12 schools on Thursday.

Brewer called the land swap one of the last pieces of a project to create the “Arizona Biomedical Corridor.” The development will allow ASU students to work closely with Mayo professionals doing clinical research.

The completed corridor will stretch from 56th Street south of the Loop 101 freeway to Tatum and the 101.

State trust land income is used to benefit schools or universities.
