The Senate Committee on Universities, Technical Colleges, Children and Families signed off on a bill Tuesday that would provide more money to expand a child psychiatry consultation program.

The bill provides $1.5 million each year to expand the program, run by the Medical College of Wisconsin and Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.

The 2019-21 budget approved earlier this year provides a $500,000 increase to expand the program next fiscal year.
