GARDEN CITY, N.Y. — A federal agency supports a plan to sell New York’s Plum Island, home to the country’s only laboratory that studies infectious animal diseases that could affect the livestock industry, according to a draft report by the agency.

Adrienne Esposito, executive director of the Long Island-based Citizens Campaign for the Environment, said Wednesday that the federal government should retain ownership of the property and convert it to a national park.
