BRISTOL, Tenn. - The King School of Medicine is moving forward.
We spoke with Virginia State Senator Bill Carico, who says the Virginia Tobacco Commission and others are pleased with the progress made by developers. Carico tells us they met yesterday in northern Virginia.
The commission is refunding the money spent by the developers since September. Funding to the project was originally withheld because the developers had not raised $10 million, a requirement given to them at the beginning of the project.
The commission is still withholding more than $24 million dollars until they meet again in May.
