Sen. Christopher Dodd, a Connecticut Democrat, managed to insert a provision in the Senate's version of health care legislation that would provide $100 million for a university hospital that he hopes will be the one at the University of Connecticut, The Hartford Courant reported. The provision was written without identifying UConn. Rather, it calls for the funds to go to an academic health center at a public research university that includes a state's only public medical and dental schools. UConn fits the criteria, but so do medical centers in about a dozen other states.
