Capitol Improvement

More massive mega-waste planned at the Capitol. There are plans to remodel the state Capitol to the tune of $260 million. The project consists of building offices, a lobby, and an auditorium underneath the Capitol plaza. The plan also includes creating a visitors center, increasing the number of hearing rooms, revamping security, improving accessibility, and adding restrooms. Planners hope to start the work in the fall of 2008. It will take 6 years to finish.
Questions concerning this escapade of our elected officials include,
Do we want tons of our tax money spent on the state Capitol instead of other liberal waste or maybe property tax relief?
Should lawmakers start the flow of funds this year? I would bet they already have a plan.Wasn't something like this mentioned in the 2005 session? Obviously some cash has been spent on this already. It looks like some architect made some income drawing up the design.
