Kansas bio leaders and supporters of the National Bio & Agro Defense Facility met Thursday with the media to answer safety concerns about the $ 451 Million dollar laboratory they want to bring to the Kansas State University campus.

The project has been in the works for 2 years now.

Leaders say the facility would develop solutions to high consequence foreign animal diseases including those that can spread from animals to people.

But, a group calling itself no national bio agro defense facility in kansas says the bio lab is too dangerous to be located anywhere in the U.S. mainland, especially Manhattan.

Homeland security has said it will pick one of the five finalists as the site for the lab by the end of this year.
