N.C. Consortium suspends NBAF bid 

BioRegion News is reporting that the N.C. Consortium is backing off its bid for the National Bio and Agro Defense Facility in Butner, citing strong opposition to the plan. (BioRegion's Web site requires registration to read the full story but is free.)

This announcement comes on the heels of a puff piece in the August edition of NC Magazine, the state's Chamber of Commerce publication, on NBAF's merits and, in the mag's viewpoint, certain economic boon for the state.
