MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy says the Department of Defense is no longer considering Vermont as a location for an anti-ballistic missile launch site.

Vermont’s Camp Ethan Allen was one of five locations being considered for a Ground-based Midcourse Interceptor East Coast location.

The other locations being considered are Camp Ravenna Joint Military Training Center, Ohio; NAS Portsmouth SERE Training Area, Maine; Fort Custer CTC, Mich. and Fort Drum, N.Y.

Leahy says he’s opposed to the missile system because he considers it a waste of money.
