Legislators closed a meeting to the public that would discuss spending seventy-five million of taxpayer money to improve Capitol security
Wrap: For the second consecutive week lawmakers made reporters leave after closing what was previously a public meeting.
The House Security Infrastucture Committee did not have a quorum within the first ten minutes so instead it acted a sub-committee.
Within those first ten minutes Cathy Brown the Director of Capitol Facilities Management spoke about how some of the seventy-five million dollars of Capitol security funds would be used.
|Description: "The other $35 would be for the MoDOT building and moves those folks into other MoDOT space within the community. In addition to that would potentially build a tunnel to this building and MoDOT."|
Prior to Brown's statement the meeting was moved to a close session forcing the public and the press to leave.
