TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Congressman Tim Huelskamp is challenging a statement by a fellow Kansan in the U.S. House that funding for a new bioscience lab is secure under a new budget agreement.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1fz2ix8 ) that Huelskamp is questioning comments last week by fellow Republican Lynn Jenkins about why she voted for the bipartisan measure.

Huelskamp says the bill does nothing to secure money for construction of the $1.25 billion National Bio- and Agro-Defense Facility in Manhattan. Huelskamp voted against the budget deal.

Jenkins issued a statement when the bill passed the House suggesting the money was moving forward in the process. A Jenkins spokeswoman told The Capital-Journal the statement was meant to convey that any funding for NBAF would be at stake if the budget deal stalled.
