Lawmakers Lobby For NBAF

Kansas legislative leaders visited Washington DC this week to lobby for funding to build an animal disease lab in Manhattan. President Obama's budget proposal includes 150 million dollars to start construction of the National Bio- and Agro-Defense Facility, or NBAF (enn-baff). Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley, a Topeka Democrat, was part of the group. He says Republicans and Democrats are working together to secure the funding.

The lab will study animal diseases which could be used in a terrorist attack against the country. Construction is scheduled to begin later this year.
