Governor To Sign Spending Bill in Waterbury

Governor Peter Shumlin will sign the capital budget bill at the state office complex in Waterbury Wednesday. The complex was rendered unusable after flooding from Tropical Storm Irene.

Most of the $69 million in capital spending that Shumlin will authorize will be for Irene-related projects.

The state is still waiting to hear from FEMA exactly how much the federal government will contribute to the estimated $124 million cost of renovating and rebuilding the state offices.
