Here is a recent feature I filed for KSTX, Texas Public Radio (San Antonio, TX):
A Department of Homeland Security funded, $500 million federal laboratory is looking for a home and San Antonio has three potential sites for the proposed National Bio- and Agro-Defense Facility. The biolab will focus on both potential biological terror threats and naturally occurring diseases that could affect the food supply or spread from animals to people. But while many see the biolab as a job generator for San Antonio, others are looking at the potential hazards and deadly agents it would bring into our community. Texas Public Radio’s Charles Davis has more on the story from Capitol Hill.
