Shumlin promises results in timecard investigation in 3 weeks

Posted: Updated:

Gov. Peter Shumlin promised to have results from an investigation into the Vermont State Police in three weeks.

A look at state workers' overtime salaries last week led to criminal charges alleging former Vt. State Police Sgt. James Deeghan lied on his time card.

Shumlin told reporters Tuesday an investigation into the past six years of Deeghan's timecards will be completed in three weeks time and that an investigation into the Williston barracks will be completed in a matter of months.

"I'm a business person, business people don't like paying overtime. I don't want taxpayers paying unnecessary overtime either. I'm going to manage this state the same way I managed my business; the less overtime the better," said Shumlin, D-Vermont.

Shumlin says he believes this was a personnel problem, not a problem with the system. He says the investigation will make it clear if an investigation into all state workers' timecards is necessary.
