Federal investigators left Texas A&M Thursday, but the school's bio-defense research program is still on hold. A team from the Center for Disease Control has been on campus as part of the school's bio-defense recertification process.

TAMU officials say the team left today as scheduled. They say the CDC will return, but they aren't sure when.

Just two weeks ago, the university agreed to pay the federal government $1 million to resume its bio-defense program. The CDC suspended the program after the university failed to report that researchers were exposed to bio-weapons agents.
