A U.S. Senate subcommittee has approved $404 million in federal spending for the construction of a new federal research laboratory at Kansas State University.

The vote Tuesday sends the funding for the National Bio- and Agro-Defense Facility to the full Senate Appropriations Committee for consideration. The money is part of the Department of Homeland Security budget for 2014.

Federal officials want to build the $1.25 billion lab to replace an aging facility at Plum Island, N.Y., to conduct research on animal diseases.

State officials have approved spending up to $305 million in bond proceeds as part of its cost to construct the lab. Ground has been broken on a central utility plant that will service the lab.

Tuesday’s development was announced by Kansas Sens. Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran.

Iggy, you said “Goodbye Moran and Roberts your done in…”, it should be “Goodbye Moran and Roberts, YOU’RE done in…”. Moran and Roberts are done only when entire Kansas votes them out, not just from you.
