Wyoming capitol renovation nears final OK

By  | 

Cheyenne, WY (AP) - A $259 million plan to renovate Wyoming's State Capitol and the adjacent Herschler Building is close to legislative approval.

The House unanimously voted Wednesday to give final approval to the Capitol Square Project.

The Wyoming Tribune-Eagle reports that the Senate, which has passed the bill, and the House need to agree to minor amendments before sending it to Gov. Matt Mead.

The capitol building was commissioned in 1886 and last saw renovations in 1980. Consultants say its heating, cooling, fire and other systems must be upgraded. Structural repairs also are needed.
