The massive 3-year, $300-million restoration of the Minnesota State Capitol is about halfway complete.
Construction crews have been cleared from the Minnesota Capitol building after workers found two suspicious packages.
The massive renovation hiding the graceful lines of Minnesota’s Capitol in protective wrap and bristling scaffolding has left the inside even more unrecognizable and uninviting as the Legislature prepares to spring back into action.
A proposed Minnesota legislative office building that is being constructed on a tight timeline is headed back to the drawing board. The Department of Administration said Monday it was canceling a previous selection process for picking a team to build it.
An advisory task force has forwarded proposed legislation to Minnesota lawmakers that would dramatically expand the Capitol complex security force.
Minnesota officials are pushing ahead with a publicly financed $2.6 million renovation of the 100-year-old Governor’s Residence, making what they say are overdue fixes to a historically significant property worth about as much as the restoration will cost.
