Oklahoma Senate passes bill to fully fund historic Capitol repair


The Oklahoma Senate gave final passage to a bill on Thursday that will ensure full funding for a historic project to repair and refurbish the nearly century-old state Capitol.

A bill to provide the final $125 million in bonding authority for the $245 million project now goes to Gov. Mary Fallin, who is expected to sign the measure.

The Capitol needs exterior work to prevent water from seeping in to the building and eroding the limestone facade. Inside, the electrical and plumbing systems need major work.

Other work will be done to upgrade security, computer and heat and air conditioning systems.

The cost of the project is in line with what other states have had to pay to restore Capitol buildings, and Sen. Brian Bingman said that by providing full funding up front for the project, the state will save money in the long run.

Does that price include a fresco of this on the ceiling of the dome?
