Peoria's City Council on Tuesday committed $200,000 over two years to the International Bioscience Commercialization Consortium — as well as an in-kind donation of 10,000 square feet of office and lab space for a global headquarters within the Phoenix suburb, at a location yet to be decided. The council voted 6-0, with one member absent, following a brief discussion.
