In his budget for fiscal year 2013, Governor Tom Corbett proposes to de-fund the CURE program created by Act 77, the Tobacco Settlement Fund legislation, in 2001. Hospitals and research institutes across the state stand to lose a combined $60 million in research funding; Wistar itself has about $1.5 million a year at stake. The proposed de-funding will have a significant impact on Wistar.
