California lawmakers are bulldozing ahead with a costly demolition of the East Annex and a plan to block public access to the West Steps and destroy Capitol Park.
Now is not the time to burden taxpayers with a $1.4 billion debt for the next 30 years. It’s time to increase public safety and save the historic West Steps.
Save Our Capitol! is working to preserve the historic Capitol and its surrounding Park, including hundreds of irreplaceable trees. Alternatives exist to make the Annex safe without spending more than $1.2 billion to excavate the West Steps, build a new parking garage, and demolish-and-rebuild the Annex, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
