Lieutenant Gov. Dan Patrick supports idea of Tech vet school, discusses funding

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

On higher education Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick said he's supported the idea of the Texas Tech vet school, but emphasizes Tech will have to foot the bill before the legislature will.

"First of all you have to find out who the new chancellor is. You have to find out what the regents want to do but, they're going to have to raise those dollars as they said the would," Patrick said.

Last month Senator Charles Perry said former Chancellor Robert Duncan's push for the vet school was one of the big reasons for his forced resignation.

Dr. Tedd Mitchell is serving as interim until the board of regents name a new chancellor.

Dr. Mitchell said he expects the system to pursue a vet school vigorously.
