02:32 PM -- Letter to CDC Regarding the Condition of the Dome

Ms. Contiguglia referred the committee to a copy of a letter sent to the Capital Development Committee regarding the condition of the dome (Attachment E). Committee discussion of the condition of the dome ensued, with Mr. Nichols explaining that the Office of the State Architect has put in a request for federal stimulus moneys for needed repairs. Mr. Shepherd said the dome is the top priority among the projects submitted to the Office of State Planning and Budgeting (OSPB) for federal stimulus dollars. Mr. Shepherd agreed to provide further information on the requests submitted to the OSPB. Mr. Shepherd talked to the committee about the scope of the dome project, saying $11.6 million is the current estimate, which includes replacement of all fasteners. Ms. Contiguglia said she would revise the letter sent to the CDC and send it to the OSPB.
