For Immediate Release: October 11, 2017
Senate outlines operations during Capitol building closure
Although the state Capitol will be closed beginning
Friday evening, October 13 through Sunday, October 22, citizens
will still be able to contact members and staff for assistance via
phone. The closure is necessary for crews to replace the building’s
electrical system, part of which includes original wiring installed
over 100 years ago. This marks another key step in the multi-year
interior and exterior repair and restoration project currently underway
at the Capitol.
During the building closure, senators, their executive assistants,
and other staff members will be able to make and receive calls and
check messages. Those wishing to contact a Senate office or staff
division but are unsure of the extension can call 405-521-5558.
Callers can leave a message explaining who they need to speak to
and their information will be forwarded to the appropriate office.
Because there will be no electrical service in the Capitol, the
Senate’s official webpage and official email will be unavailable
during the time the building is closed.
