New legislative chambers in North Dakota



Bismarck, North Dakota – The state legislature’s rooms are being renovated.

The Senate and House chambers are undergoing maintenance.

They will replace the MPs’ 25-year-old chairs and paint the ceilings and woodwork. Additionally, the 90-year-old HVAC system will be updated.

“With the new technology, we’re actually going to bring air in from the ceiling down to heat and cool the space. It should make for a much more comfortable and quieter space for them to perform their work in,” said Tom Job, Capitol Complex Construction and Maintenance Project Manager.

Visitors won’t be able to take tours of the chambers until the project is finished. Federal COVID funds will be used to cover the $6.5 million cost.
