State bioscience project gets $291 billion

The normally placid State Bond Commission on Monday staged a 15-minute debate on Connecticut’s commitment to bioscience before Democrats, led by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, sealed the $291 million deal with a Maine-based firm.

The 10-year-long bond-issuance deal, part of a memorandum of understanding signed Monday with Jackson Laboratory, sets the scene for a $1-billion-plus development of a new genome research facility to be constructed on the campus of the University of Connecticut Health Center in Farmington.
