See inside Virginia's new General Assembly building
Contractors are putting the finishing touches on the new General Assembly Building, which has been in the works since 2017.
Why it matters: The 14-story complex on Capitol Square is where lawmakers are most likely to hear from citizens, both in their offices and in committee rooms, where the nitty gritty details of legislation are typically hammered out.
Details: The state budgeted nearly $200 million for the building, which blends a historic, 19th-century façade with new construction.
What's happening: The building, which replaces a structure that had last seen a major upgrade in 1975, is set to open in time for next year's session.
