INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - About $19 million for a planned medical school campus in downtown Evansville is included in Gov. Mike Pence’s state budget proposal.

That money toward Indiana University’s portion of the project is part of the $50 million that IU and other state-supported schools involved in the project have requested from the state.

While the General Assembly could change that funding amount, Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke says Pence’s proposal is a great starting point. Winnecke tells the Evansville Courier & Press (https://bit.ly/1w3mPPM ) that IU’s portion is the project’s cornerstone and needs to be funded first.

IU, the University of Southern Indiana, Ivy Tech Community College and the private University of Evansville are all planning to offer health care-related programs at the campus that would cover about six city blocks.
