Nice $800 Million Renovation Contract
The Cannon House Office Building gets an $800 million renovation. The building across the street from the Capitol is 107 years old. USA Today reports stone is falling from exterior columns and plaster is dropping from the ceiling. Pipes are corroded and bursting and the Cannon Caucus Room floods when it rains. The renovation work will restore stone, plaster and other materials in the building. It will also replace Cannon's heating, A-C, electrical and water systems. The renovation is expected to take ten years. House members will still be able to work in the building during the restoration.
