State Laboratory Testing Facilities' Needs and Issues are at Critical Points

Report Details

Report Description: 
Legislative leadership commissioned a study to gauge the issues and needs of state-owned laboratory testing facilities. Nearly all the State’s laboratory testing programs are in facilities dating back to the middle of the last century. Not only are they relatively old, but many were not constructed for lab testing purposes. Each of the State’s lab testing programs do not have sufficient lab space in their current facilities, and no facility upgrades or remodeling have occurred to maintain modern standards.
