our capital is crumbling

State Capitol in need of repairs
HARTFORD (AP) -- There are leaks at the state Capitol. But not the kind that find their way into the media.
Despite a 39-(M)-million-dollar renovation done nearly 16 years ago, a report says the historic building is leaking and crumbling.
An arhitechural firm recently completed a study on the 127-year-old Capitol and pointed to number of structural problems, the Connecticut Post is reporting in today's editions.
Those problems include flaking of plaster ceilings under three of the four Capitol entrances, oak doors in need of refinishing to prevent decay, rust on beams and columns on the first floor and the need for a major cleaning project.
The report did not include a cost estimate for the repairs.
