Where our money comes from

Right now, the Texas Legislature is in session hashing out the state’s budget for the next two years. And just a few weeks ago, Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst and Speaker of the House Joe Straus asked the Health Science Center and other state institutions to prepare for a possible two-and-a-half percent budget cut because of the sluggish economy.  With all of this talk of funding, this seems like a good time to explain where the Health Science Center gets its funding and how it is spent.
