Legislators in Washington recently passed a bill that removed a restriction giving the University of Washington (UW) the exclusive right to operate a public medical school in the state. The legislation, which needs to be signed by the governor, would allow Washington State University (WSU) to move forward with its plan to open a medical school.
 
UW and WSU dissolved their medical education partnership last October after WSU announced its plan to open its own publically funded medical school in Spokane.
 
The legislation doesn’t appropriate any funds to WSU to establish its medical school. Lawmakers are currently working on the next two-year state budget and WSU is expected to request $2.5 million to help establish its medical school.
