Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says the Wisconsin State Capitol is the “People’s House,” again. The Capitol building has been closed to the public since March 25th due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Department of Administration made that move. Lawmakers passed a joint resolution Monday, on the first day of the legislative session, re-opening the building to everyone. Vos says Democratic Governor Tony Evers can handle access to his office anyway he wants, but the Legislature is “committed to public access and the safe re-opening of our state.” Capitol tours were canceled last March. Monday’s news release says nothing about when those tours might resume.
