Vermont State Health Laboratory Ribbon Cutting

Senator Sirotkin was honored to be part of the ribbon cutting for the new $30 million state of the art Vermont State Health Laboratory with  the Governor and several other state officials and legislators (see photos with Sen. Mazza and  very happy AHS Secretary Harry Chen).  Senator Sirotkin serves on the Senate Institutions Committee which appropriates the funds for all state capital construction projects and was happy  to see the facility come in on time and under budget.   “This project is clearly first rate and is made even better as it actually physically connects with the UVM research lab, allowing the state and university to collaborate on many facets of public health. “  Vermont goes from having the oldest state lab in the country to the newest. We all have reason to be proud, including many  of the 50 state employees who were on hand for the ceremony  and who will  happily be moving into this beautiful  new Colchester facility as early as next month.
