MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- A groundbreaking ceremony is planned for next week for the central utilities plant at a new, national biodefense lab in Manhattan.

Officials planning to attend the May 28 ceremony include Gov. Sam Brownback, U.S. Sens. Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran, U.S. Reps. Tim Huelskamp and Lynn Jenkins and Kansas State University President Kirk Schulz.

The National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility will research dangerous animal diseases and ways of protecting the nation's food supply. The Kansas facility replace an aging research center on Plum Island, N.Y.
