SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The $50 million renovation of the Illinois Capitol building includes three copper-covered wooden doorways that cost $669,608.

State officials released the price tag for the doors Wednesday in response to media inquiries more than a week ago. They had first said the cost could not be itemized.

Capitol architect J. Richard Alsop III says materials and fabrication made up $535,808 of the cost and installation and engineering make up the rest.

Alsop says the doors give the building a "desired and appropriate historical fabric." A spokesman for House Speaker Michael Madigan explained the cost by noting that the building is a national landmark.

The $50 million project is being paid for with construction bonds. It includes replacement of heating and air-conditioning and bringing the building up to current safety codes.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri Senate has passed additional funding for Capitol repairs, design plans for a new facility at the state mental hospital and for the state parks system.

The measure was approved by a 29-4 vote on Wednesday. It would allow the state to spend $50 million on new Capitol windows and structural repairs, $38 million on a new state office building, $20 million for parks and $13 million to fund design plans at Fulton State Hospital.

Lawmakers moved forward with the additional funding last week after Gov. Jay Nixon's administration released an April financial report showing state revenue had increased by more than 11 percent from last year.

The spending plan now heads back to the House.
