Governor Dayton says that state lawmakers should vote to kick everyone out of the State Capitol for the four years that engineers say is necessary to make major renovations to the building. Dayton said in his State of the State address Wednesday that Minnesota’s Capitol is “wearing down and falling apart.” Recent estimates have found that the 1905 building needs $241-million in restoration work to make it safe for its occupants and protect its architectural importance. Dayton says lawmakers should act now before someone is injured or worse and a public outcry results. He says a long relocation will be tough on the building’s users but that they need to take an unselfish vote now to preserve the building for future generations.
