Kansas State University is bidding to be the home for a new federal bio- and agro-defence facility, a project that comes with $500m in government funding.

Jerry Moran on Tuesday counted terrorism among top reasons for the United States to increase its thrust toward renewable energy. "This is no longer just about economic development," said the five-term congressman, who said his first exposure to alternative energy came from farmers in his district seeking new income sources from crops.

That is what happens, he said, when this country pumps "billions of dollars" into countries with terrorist organizations.How to contact As always, you can find information to contact members of the Kansas congressional delegation [here.][5] [1]: http://desmoinesregister.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060823/NEWS09/608230368/1001 [2]: http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/editorial/4134740.html [3]: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/5274022.stm?ls [4]: http://cjonline.com/stories/082306/kan_renewable.shtml [5]: http://ljworld.com/extra/where_to_write.html#fed
