HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut’s Old State House will be closing, at least temporarily.

Jim Tracy, executive director of the Office of Legislative Management, said Thursday marks the final day for a contract with the Connecticut Public Affairs Network, which has provided educational programming at the 220-year-old historic site in downtown Hartford.

State lawmakers included language in a budget bill that transferred responsibility for the facility from the Office of Legislative Management to the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.

That agency’s budget was recently cut and must still decide how to manage the building.

The two offices are now negotiating a sub-lease, which Tracy says could take a few months.

State Capitol police will continue to monitor it and there will be minimal maintenance.
