Campaign begins to win bid for Facility for Rare Isotope Beams

Political, business, labor and education leaders have kicked off a campaign to have a proposed $550 million Facility for Rare Isotope Beams project built on the campus at Michigan State University in East Lansing. The highly sought scientific research facility could bring international prestige, $1 billion in economic activity and 400 new jobs over the next 20 years, backers of the project said. MSU, home to the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory, is considered a leading contender for the cutting-edge facility. The U.S. Department of Energy will accept proposals until July 21 and is expected to announce the winner by the end of the year.
