Spokane lawmakers introduce WSU med-school bill with broad bipartisan support

Spokane lawmakers Michael Baumgartner and Marcus Riccelli introduced bills in Olympia on Wednesday that pave the way for a new Washington State University medical school in Spokane, with broad bipartisan co-sponsorship demonstrating deep support in the House and Senate.

Senate Bill 5487, sponsored by Sen. Baumgartner, R-Spokane, has a total 17 signatures. The measure sponsored by Rep. Riccelli, D-Spokane, House Bill 1559, has a total 60 signatures. According to the Washington State Legislature, the strong support in both chambers augurs well for a proposal that aims to boost medical education statewide and relieve a severe shortage of doctors across the state of Washington.

“I am thrilled to be able to submit this bill,” Riccelli said. “Sixty members of the House of Representatives from both sides of the aisle, from all over the state, are joining together to support a stronger, more vibrant medical school system in Washington.”
