AUSTIN (AP) — The end of a nearly yearlong moratorium for the state’s $3 billion crusade against cancer is getting the agency back to work after months of turmoil.

The Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas will hold its first board meeting Friday since lawmakers revamped the agency this spring. The overhaul followed a criminal investigation into the agency and state auditors finding questionable spending.

Interim executive director Wayne Roberts said Thursday that moving board meetings inside the Texas Capitol symbolizes the agency’s new commitment to transparency.

Lifting the moratorium allows the agency, known as CPRIT, to hand out more than $100 million in grants frozen by lawmakers. Roberts says the agency is checking with those grant winners to make sure their research is still ongoing.
