Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder was joined by President Gilmour, WSU students and staff, and state legislators at Wayne State University on June 25, 2012, as he signed a bill authorizing more than $300 million in capital outlay spending on Michigan universities. The bill provides for $30 million in funding to Wayne State for the new state-of-the-art Multidisciplinary Biomedical Research Building (MBRB). In his remarks at the press conference, President Gilmour stated that the MBRB will be a source not only for education and discovery, but also for economic growth. The legislation, HB 5541, is now Public Act 192.
