CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - State leaders are working to revise plans for the project to renovate the State Capitol and adjacent Herschler Building after learning the work will exceed the project’s $300 million budget.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1OiMhiE ) the Capitol Renovation Oversight Group was informed Monday that the Herschler Building portion of the work is $32 million over budget.

In response, the oversight group has recommended getting rid of plans to build a four-story addition onto the state office building. The group is now looking to instead extend the wings of the V-shaped building that sits north of the Capitol.

A consultant says the new idea would help bring the renovation project back within its budget.

Construction work on the $300 million Capitol restoration project is expected to start next spring.
