(updated) FROM SYNAPSE: EL PASO IS FOURTH CITY IN TEXAS.

"El Paso is the fourth most populous city in the state of Texas with a population of more than 700,000. With such an immense population, this region has been federally designated as a medically underserved area.
“A health sciences university in El Paso will provide an outstanding education for the culturally diverse communities in this area, promote crucial research related to Latino and other underserved populations, and serve as a nationally recognized primary and specialty referral center for quality patient care,” said Jose Manuel de la Rosa, founding dean of the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine."
 
FROM CPRIT, WE RECEIVED a MERE 0.7% OF ONE BILLION DOLLARS GIVEN IN CANCER PREVENTION AND  RESEARCH FUNDING TO DATE! AND THAT IS ALL FAIR, BELIEVE ME!

The truth is that some of Organizations who benefited from CPRIT fundings for El Paso, are actually not based in El Paso.  Texas Tech and UTEP are reportedly not EL Paso based.   It is CRBCM's understanding from SYNAPSE sources that our Congress Representative is planning legislation to sever EL PASO dependency from Lubbock,Texas!

What is Lubbock? A small town which has succeeded to highjack a larger town. CRBCM will stay away from this controversy!  Suffice is to say, money destined to El Paso is actually managed by Lubbock.  THE TRUE PART OF CPRIT MONEY FOR EL PASO IS MOST LIKELY 0.1-0.2% SO FAR AFTER A THIRD OF CPRIT MONEY HAS BEEN SPENT!

Lubbock (pron.: /ˈlʌbək/)[4] is a city in and the county seat of Lubbock County, Texas, United States.[5] The city is located in the northwestern part of the state, a region known historically as the Llano Estacado, and is home to three universities: Lubbock Christian University, Texas Tech University, and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. According to a 2011 Census estimate, Lubbock had a population of 233,740,[1] making it the 83rd most populous city in the United States of America and the 11th most populous city in the state of Texas.[6] The city is the economic center of the Lubbock metropolitan area, which had an estimated 2011 population of 290,002.[7]
Lubbock's nickname is the "Hub City", which derives from it being the economic, education, and health care hub of a multicounty region commonly called the South Plains.[8] The area is the largest contiguous cotton-growing region in the world[9][10] and is heavily dependent on irrigation water drawn from the Ogallala Aquifer. Lubbock was selected as the 12th best place to start a small business by CNNMoney.com.[11] They mentioned the community's traditional business atmosphere, less expensive rent for commercial space, and its central location and cooperative form of city government. Lubbock High School has been recognized for three consecutive years by Newsweek as one of the top high schools in the United States. Lubbock High School is home to the only international baccalaureate (IB) program in the region. The IB program is one of the criteria examined by Newsweek in formulating their list of top high schools.[12] (Wikipedia)"
