I now understand why governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin has so much trouble balancing a budget. The cost of cleaning up the capitol building was discussed by the head of the Department of Administration that handles building maintenance for the state. The head said that the cost of evaluating the damage done by the up to 5,000 people who occupied the building was between $60,000 and $500,000. Now this was just to evaluate the damage that turned out to be caused mostly by putting tape on the marble walls. The actual cost of restoration was estimated to be up to $7,500,000(that's right $7.5 million).
After the amounts were announced and the resulting "get reals" were spoken, the cost has been reduced to $347,000.
The head of the team of eight people who work for the state of Wisconsin and have responsibility for maintaining the building was somewhat in disagreement as he felt that the work could be accomplished within the regular performance of their duties.
