The General Services Administration is studying the feasibility of converting the vacant Federal Building in downtown Missoula to a new VA outpatient clinic.

The facility was built as the original post office in 1911 and has been under GSA ownership since 1949.

GSA spokeswoman Sally Mayberry says the VA feasibility study should be complete in June.

Mayberry tells the Missoulian that it's not known what the proposed VA project will cost or if Congress will choose to fund it.

The VA opened a new $6.3 million clinic in Billings last year.
