Architects warn budget cuts risk deterioration of Capitol building?
U.S. architecture and engineering groups are warning congressional leaders that budget cuts could leave the U.S. Capitol building in disrepair.
The groups argue the budget cuts could severely hamper needed maintenance and cause “deterioration of the Capitol dome and its supporting structures.”
They also said the cuts could lead to more costly repairs down the road while putting at risk an important symbol of U.S. Democracy.
