Marquette Crime Lab Future Secured

Encouraging news tonight about the Marquette State Police forensic lab.

Lawmakers have come through with funding to guarantee the lab’s future.

The House and Senate both passed a bill last night that included $2.5 million dollars earmarked specifically for the lab.

That would be enough money to buy the building the lab is in from local real estate developer Peter O’Dovero and renovate the space.

Governor Jennifer Granholm still has to sign the bill.

ABC 10 News Now senior reporter Mike Hoey will have much more on this story coming up on Monday.
