BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) The long-running saga of the “sick” state office building in Bennington could be coming to a close.

Vermont’s capital construction bill recently passed by the Legislature calls for the demolition and rebuilding of part of the complex that has been blamed for worker respiratory ailments.

For the past two years the courts and other state offices have been located in temporary buildings on either side of the empty state complex.

The $16 million project is expected to take two years.

State Rep. Alice Emmons told Vermont Public Radio that 80 percent of the buildings’ employees were willing to work at the location if the changes are made.
