State will allow some exhibits in tunnel to the Capitol

Jul 22, 2012 - The Associated Press

CHEYENNE -- The State Building Commission has voted to allow small exhibits in the tunnel leading into the State Capitol in Cheyenne.

The change made this week modifies a ban that the commission approved earlier preventing the public from protesting or showing displays in the tunnel linking the Capitol to the Herschler Building.

The ban came after complaints about an anti-abortion advocacy group made too much noise and took up too much space in the passageway.

The new policy sets up a process for the public to apply for permits to demonstrate in areas of the Capitol Complex.

The building commission is made up of the five elected statewide officials.

Secretary of State Max Maxfield says the commission should review the policy again next year.
