The Cornell Daily Sun reports:
Already coping with a significant reduction in state funding, the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences was dealt another blow on April 15 by the federal budget agreement, which rescinded $21 million in federal funding for two planned CALS research facilities.
Although the design phase for the facilities has been completed, construction of the research stations — the Center for Grape Genetics Research in Geneva, N.Y., and the Robert W. Holley Center for Agriculture and Health in Ithaca — is delayed indefinitely as Cornell returns the money, which was given to the University in five separate allocations between 2005 and 2010.
