Officials: repair of Colorado’s Capitol will cost $1 million

Colorado News

DENVER (AP) — Colorado officials say the cost of cleaning up vandalism to the state Capitol building is expected to total more than $1 million.

Officials say the damage occurred during protests against police violence that started on May 28 in Denver after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Protests have continued as a result of the death of Elijah McClain, a 23-year-old Black man put in a choke hold by suburban Denver police. The Denver Post reported a fence was constructed around the state Capital building to start repairs, which officials said were delayed due to ongoing vandalism.
