Legislators are exploring renovation options for Missouri's Capitol building. Alysha (UH-LEE-SHA) Love has more from Jefferson City.
Wrap: Republican Rep. Tom Flanigan says he's looking to start conversation about state Capitol renovations in the upcoming legislative session.
He says he's concerned for the building, which was built in 1917.
|Description: "It's almost been 100 years now, and in that intervening time, the building has had a lot of use and is starting to need a little face lift on it."|
Specifically, Flanigan says, there are problems with mold and old wiring.
The building is also not accessible for those in wheelchairs.
Flanigan says he's still exploring options for funding for what he says is going to be a long and expensive process.
