LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees has approved a budget request for the UW medical school.

During a special meeting Wednesday, the board approved a medical school budget request that seeks nearly $10 million more for the program.

The proposal seeks about $3.5 million to cover increasing costs, including tuition for medical and dental students, and about $6.3 million in construction appropriations.

The budget request now goes to Gov. Matt Mead who will craft his budget recommendations to the state Legislature.

Wyoming is a member of a five-state medical program that aims to train and retain doctors in Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho.

Trustees approved the bulk of the university’s 2017- 18 biennium budget request last week.
