Vt. looks to juggle money to help St. Albans firm

Posted: Updated:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - A special Vermont state panel that can take budget actions when lawmakers aren't in session has approved a plan to use $5.5 million in state funds to help a St. Albans manufacturer expand.

The Emergency Board on Wednesday voted unanimously to move the money temporarily from the state corrections budget to provide financing for a project to aid Mylan Technologies in its plan to expand in downtown St. Albans.

The plan is to allow Mylan, a maker of skin patches that deliver generic medications, to expand into the St. Albans state office building. The state, in turn, would move its roughly 200 workers to new quarters in downtown St. Albans by late next year.

The plan requires approval by the full Legislature, which is expected to give it after lawmakers convene in January.
