Security Will Be Addressed

Cheyenne, Wy – A legislative committee today (Wednesday) moved
forward with plans to install a security system to protect
priceless art at the Capitol building.
The Select Committee on Legislative Facilities agreed to begin
writing a request for proposals on such a system for the second and
third floors.
It could eventually incorporate the entire building.
Dozens of priceless paintings and old photographs line the
hallways of the Capitol.
This past legislative session, lawmakers earmarked thousands of
dollars in the budget to protect them.
Wyoming Highway Patrol troopers could be incorporated into the
system.
It may also feature marks on the backs of artwork that set off
an alarm when removed from the building.
