Questions about grant review process at Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of TX result in state senate vote to "overhaul" agency's management.
"The Texas Senate voted Wednesday to overhaul management of the state's cancer-fighting agency, which has been rocked by investigations into how it awarded millions of dollars in grants. The Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas has been under fire since last year over grants that bypassed the state's review process. A scathing report from the state auditor alleged widespread failings at CPRIT involving transparency, accountability and decision-making." -- Jim Vertuno, Associated Press
