I am no fan of the type of research conducted at Plum Island-- but moving those operations to Kansas is asinine in my opinion.
It is distressing that sometimes there were security concerns at the island facility-- but a contagious animal disease research lab in the heart of the Midwest??? Let's hope there is considerable attention paid to making sure that the new facility is securely maintained and that disease agents do not escape into the nearby environment.
Today many excellent and far more secure computer systems exist for modeling symptoms of contagious animal diseases. It is a pity those resources are not being used more extensively to train veterinarians and other health professionals to recognize and treat contagious animal diseases.
