Downtime At The Connecticut Capitol

The dome of the Connecticut State Capitol building is as pretty from inside as it is on the exterior.

The Capitol Press Room has all the wonderful quirkiness of any good newsroom.

Students from Hall High School in West Hartford explored the Connecticut State Capitol with visiting students from China late Tuesday afternoon. There, they met Paul Mounds, who is Gov. Dannel Malloy's legislative liaison. Here, they're standing  in the lobby of the Capitol with The Genius of Connecticut, a replica of the statue that was once atop the Capitol dome.

A moving sidewalk helps people get quickly from the Capitol to the Legislative Office Building next door without going outside.

Often a busy place swarming with lawmakers and lobbyists, the Legislative Office Building was quiet late Tuesday afternoon.
