TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A new Kansas Bureau of Investigation laboratory on the Washburn University campus is a step closer to construction.

Washburn's Board of Regents on Thursday approved a plan to partner with the Topeka Public Building Commission to construct the laboratory.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/19ipJcd ) the main obstacle to constructing the $40 million building was funding. The building commission has agreed to borrow the money to finance the construction, which the Legislature would pay back through appropriations.

Washburn will eventually own the laboratory and sublease it to the KBI. University administrators hope KBI scientists will eventually teach Washburn classes and faculty members could work as consultants for the agency.
