Governor-Appointed Group Supporting NBAF Meets in Topeka


NBAF sign on I-70, near ManhattanPhoto by Bryan ThompsonSupporters of a planned federal disease lab in Kansas say they’ll continue fighting for the project, despite some budget setbacks. The National Bio and Agro- Defense Facility, or NBAF, is slated to be built near Manhattan. A new steering committee appointed by Governor Sam Brownback met today (TUE) for the first time to review the project. The committee includes Republican Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins. She’s confident construction of the lab will take place.

President Obama did not include additional funding for the project in his 2013 budget proposal earlier this year. But members of the House are trying to secure $75 million more for NBAF.
