House of Representatives construction estimate up to $2 million, but speaker scales back

HouseBy Hank Stephenson | Arizona Capitol Times

The proposed renovations to the Arizona House of Representatives building were estimated at more than $2 million – double what sources had originally said the project would cost, documents released by the Arizona Department of Administration show.

The records also reveal that the project was much further along than House Speaker David Gowan and top House staff had suggested.

Late Friday afternoon, the speaker issued a statement saying the majority of the renovation plans will not go forward. The statement said the House would only be replacing the carpet and removing asbestos from the building, not renovating the basement.
