TOPEKA, Kan. The Department of Homeland Security gave final approval Monday for a site at Kansas State University for a $450 million federal lab where animal diseases and other potential bioterrorism threats will be researched.
DHS released its final report which confirms a decision announced in December to build a new National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility at the Manhattan, Kan., campus to replace an aging lab at Plum Island, N.Y.
Sites in Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina and Texas were also considered for the new lab.

Whether or not I can trust them is not the point. This facility is bringing a lot on needed jobs to the area, and who knows maybe with the new facility and new funding will come the cure for some of these dreaded diseases like Ebola or even Aids.
