Oversight Board Defends Capitol Renovation Project

The board that had oversight of the controversial renovation of the Illinois State Capitol is defending its spending decisions. 


Governor Pat Quinn and others have blasted the $50 million revamp because a portion of the money was spent on historically-accurate, but costly, aesthetic features like copper-plated doors or replica chandeliers. 


The Office of the Architect of the Capitol board, which is made up of appointees from the four legislative leaders, says those features make up only a fraction of the total project, and says all procedures were followed and fiscal limits were respected.  The board says the result is that the Statehouse is a safer building that will stand the test of time.
