COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - The question of state funding for Jackson Labs is still up in the air.
The state could give the bio-medical research facility $50 million for the first year of the project. But, the state is still reviewing the lab's application.
The county would then have to come up with matching funds, costing taxpayers $130 million.
On Tuesday, commissioners voted to ask the courts if they can use bonds for the project.
