FUNDING FOR NEW BIO AND AGRO-DEFENSE FACILITIES IN KANSAS APPROVED
AgriBusiness Club of Kansas City reports:

With passage of the Congressional OMNIBUS APPROPRIATIONS BILL earlier this month, the NATIONAL BIO AND AGRO-DEFENSE FACILITY (NBAF) will receive $404 million for its construction and development in Manhattan, KS.

The state of Kansas is contributing $202 million.

Citing a January 2012 economic impact study, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran's office reports the NBAF will employ approximately 326 permanent employees and support some 757 construction jobs.

The facility is expected to have a $3.5 billion economic impact on Kansas in the first 20 years.
