TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A proposal to build a new veterinary laboratory at Kansas State University is one step closer to reality.

The Kansas Board of Regents on Wednesday approved the university’s proposal for a Kansas State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, with an estimated cost of $43.2 million. The project still must be approved the Kansas Legislature.

The Manhattan Mercury reports (https://bit.ly/1KZalqD ) the university plans an 80,000-square-foot facility. The new building will allow the university to consolidate its diagnostic and research labs with offices and support facilities.

Regent Bill Feuerborn said Kansas State will seek $10 million in private donations for the project.

A timeline for the construction, if the project is approved, has not been set.
