Email

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota leaders have agreed to spend up to $150,000 to begin fine-tuning plans for a proposed state Capitol restoration that could cost hundreds of millions of dollars.

Gov. Mark Dayton, top lawmakers and others on a special preservation committee approved a contract Tuesday in hopes of getting an architect's detailed report prepared by mid-January.

Early estimates say renovations to the 106-year-old building could require $200 million.
