DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Restoration for the State Historical Building in downtown Des Moines could come with a price tag of up to $101 million.
The Des Moines Register reports the state Department of Cultural Affairs held a budget meeting Thursday that included a proposal to Gov. Terry Branstad.
The agency's director says the sum is combined requests for upcoming fiscal years that would be phased over several years. Mary Cownie says the total could be lowered.
The newspaper reports the governor said he planned to carefully review the proposal, and noted it was a huge price tag.
The State Historical Building opened in 1987. It houses several divisions of the cultural affairs agency, as well as the State Historical Museum and other offices.
