TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Congress is considering a $1.1 trillion appropriations bill that contains funding for projects in Kansas with implications for the next several decades.

The bill, which has been agreed upon by House and Senate negotiators, contains $404 million for the next round of construction of the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility near Kansas State University in Manhattan. It also contains $219 million for military construction at McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita in advance of the stationing of new KC-46A refueling tankers.

Congress is expected to vote on the appropriations bill by Saturday, but first must pass a continuing resolution to keep the federal government operating until the deal is finished.

The bill contains the spending for several government agencies and is based on a budget agreement reached last month.
