I didn't mean "rich", I meant 50-75+ salary.

That sounds right, and maybe a bit higher for more senior scientists. Just didn't want to make it seem like these were corporate executive type salaries who'd be buying homes in the Dominion.

They won't be starting from scratch, a large number of folks from the original center will be coming, but it'll be bigger and more diverse, so room for more jobs.

It's not coming to San Antonio. Manhattan, Kansas will get the lab.

Kansas recommended for biodefense lab (http://www.mysanantonio.com/videos/35485089.html - broken link)

"The Bush administration acknowledged earlier this year that accidents have happened with the feared virus at the Plum Island facility. But Homeland Security officials are convinced it can operate safely using the latest containment procedures."

(Fm the KSAT News article)

This is not real assuring to me as I live about 5 miles away from the proposed site here. How many times have we heard, this would not have happened if proper procedures were followed? Let Kansas have it.

The final decision will be released tomorrow. Nelson Wolff was quoted in the Express-News as saying that San Antonio plans to lodge a vigorous protest and still has a slim chance at the facility. But if this were a football game, he said San Antonio has the ball "on its own 5-yard line."

This may be a more recent update.

San Antonio loses out on bio-lab facility - San Antonio Business Journal:

While I'm sure DHS would never screw anything up, I'm sort of glad this is not in my back yard.

Bummer the way SA lost it though. Sounds a little unfair......
