Could sequestration endanger bioscience lab?

A New York Times article on the political realities of the federal government’s automatic spending cuts indicated that the planned National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility in Manhattan could be jeopardized. “The $1 billion project’s first big infusion, $404 million, will happen only if sequestration can be undone,” the article said, noting that this could put political pressure on Kansas Sens. Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran.
