National Research Lab Could Come to El Reno (Jun 12, 2007)
In the coming weeks, the Department of Homeland Security will decide where to build the National Bio and Agro Defense Facility, a proposed 520,000 square foot high-security laboratory that will research cures and vaccines for biological threats such as mad cow disease and bio-weapons. Many lawmakers are clamoring to have the facility and its high-paying jobs in their district. But critics call it unnecessary pork, and say it could present a danger to the surrounding community. Fourteen sites are currently being considered, including one in El Reno.

Guest include Congressman Frank Lucas; Grazinglands Lab Director Jean Steiner; John Kerr, President of the San Antonio-based Southwest Foundation; and Renee Porter, spokesperson for Advancia, the company helping OSU and the Grazinglands lab try to bring the facility to Oklahoma (4 minutes).
