Need for Rehabilitation of Delaware University Labs


         (AP) - The University of Delaware is asking state lawmakers to accept Gov. Jack Markell's recommendation for $3 million to help the school rehabilitate some labs.

     University President Pat Harker tells WDEL Radio some of the school's labs on its Newark campus and one in Lewes are old and need repairs. Harker says the rehabilitation projects would cost more than $3 million, so other funds would be necessary as well.

     During a budget hearing, Harker also discussed the need to increase financial aid in the university's operating budget to help Delaware residents afford college.
