Agro-Defense Project Vote Delayed

KSAL StaffNovember 25, 2014

Gov. Sam Brownback and top legislative leaders agreed to delay a vote on issuing bonds needed for the proposed agro-defense plant in Manhattan.

The State Finance Council decided Monday to postpone issuing $231 million in bonds for the National Bio- and Agro-Defense Facility.

Republican Senate President Susan Wagle, of Wichita, told the council final action on the bonds could occur in December. She wants the state’s investment in NBAF to be legally capped at $307 million.

The $1.2 billion federal laboratory at Kansas State University is planned for research on dangerous animal-borne illnesses.

The state initially agreed to invest $105 million and about three-fourths of that bonding authority has been used.
