Vermont gets extension for lab replacement

Posted: Updated:

WATERBURY, Vt. (AP) - The Federal Emergency Management Agency has given Vermont more time to plan a replacement for the state agriculture and environmental laboratory in Waterbury that was destroyed by Tropical Storm Irene flooding in 2011.

State officials recently determined they couldn't meet FEMA's deadlines for details and a legislative commitment to the project.

FEMA has granted an extension.

Deputy Secretary of Administration Michael Clasen told the Burlington Free Press that the state is seeking clarification from FEMA about what must be submitted by May 20 for the project to remain eligible for disaster aid.
