In early April, Seven Days staff writer Andy Bromage broke the news that two chemists from the state's breath-testing program had raised questions about the equipment used to test drunk drivers.

Shortly after the story appeared, Gov. Peter Shumlin transferred responsibility for administering the program from the Department of Health to the Department of Public Safety, and the legislature held a hearing about the issue.

Bromage has continued to investigate the DataMaster breath testers, and today Seven Days published a follow-up story online. Bromage has uncovered a number of alleged problems with the machines.
