Jobs vs. possible animal testing divide Chandler (Arizona)http://www.azcentral.com/business/ar...vance0709.html
A pharmaceutical testing laboratory proposed in Chandler promises to bring good jobs and to give a boost to the state's emerging biomedical industry.
Still, animal testing that could occur at the facility has turned many residents against the project.
The $200 million plant proposed by Covance Inc. of Princeton, N.J., initially could bring up to 400 high-paying jobs, and it significantly could bolster Arizona's stature as an emerging biomedical hub.
