OMG. We may regret this. But. Uh. Damon Thayer deserves some serious thank-yous for his latest move.
Republican Sen. Damon Thayer, R-Georgetown, has sent a letter to GOP Senate President David Williams asking the legislature to shelve a planned $448,000 renovation of lawmakers’ offices until the economy improves.
Thayer said in an interview that he heard from his constituents who were concerned about the cost of adding conference rooms, kitchens and other renovated spaces in the state Senate’s office area in the Capitol Annex at a time when the state is strapped for cash.
Yeah. For real.
And David Williams has decided to suspend everything:
Senate President David Williams has suspended the pending $448,997 project to expand and renovate Senate offices in the Capitol Annex.
In a letter today to the director of the Legislative Research Commission, Williams said, “Due to present financial constraints affecting segments of state government, I have determined to indefinitely suspend further renovation.”
