Senate committee approves $404 million for NBAF in 2014 budget
The Department of Homeland Security’s 2014 budget tentatively includes a hefty sum of $404 million for the National Bio- and Agro-defense Facility at Kansas State University.
The budget was approved last week by the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee. In addition to the $404 million, the Kansas City Business Journal reports Kansas officials have approved $305 million in bonds to support the facility. An additional $35 million is funded by the Kansas Bioscience Authority.
The House has already approved the budget, the final step for passage is approval by the full Senate.
Senator Jerry Moran, R-Kan, said the NBAF remains a top priority and the new facility is good for Kansas and the United States.
“It means we’re on the way to constructing a modern, world-class facility — a vital component to protect Americans against biological threats,” Moran told the Kansas City Business Journal.
