WCAX - 10:11 am Wed Dec 12th, 2012

Two southern development organizations are getting $470,000 to boost long-term recovery efforts following last year's Tropical Storm Irene.

The state's congressional delegation says the Windham Regional Commission and the Bennington County Regional Commission will use the funds to work with businesses and encourage public and private approaches to promote job creation.

Sens. Patrick Leahy and Sen. Bernie Sanders and U.S. Rep. Peter Welch say the money will speed the recovery of many southern Vermont communities still recovering from Irene.
