A bill that would allocate $25 million toward the creation of a Phoenix Biomedical Campus has passed Arizona's Health Committee unanimously, according to published reports.

Three university presidents, the dean of the UA College of Medicine, medical sector representatives, the ABOR president and Flagstaff's mayor attended the committee hearing Thursday.

The bill, sponsored by Sen. Carolyn Allen, R-Scottsdale, awaits action on the Senate floor.

The Phoenix Biomedical Campus would be a mile-long biomedical district that would allow research institutions, clinics and hospitals to expand or locate to the city's downtown area.

Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon put forth the plan, which has the backing of the University of Arizona and Arizona State University. The district would encompass much of ASU's downtown campus, including that school's College of Nursing and Healthcare Innovation.
