Kansas lawmakers tour NBAF

U.S. senators Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran along with Representative Tim Huelskamp got a tour today from the Department of Homeland Security.

The lawmakers were able to personally view the status of construction of the facility. The $1.25 billion new lab is designed to conduct research on large animals and related diseases to replace an aging facility at Plum Island, New York. Construction began last year on a central utility plant that will provide power and other services for the lab.
