The Spiral Staircase Will Not Be Showing at the Wisconsin State Capitol
Incoming GOP Assembly leaders shuffling offices. (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 12/1/2012)
Excerpt: As Vos (R-Rochester), Suder (R-Abbotsford) and others considered how to reallocate office space, they also contemplated installing a spiral staircase in the speaker's office so lawmakers could more easily reach other offices one floor below. At one stage, Assembly staff contacted the architectural division of the state Department of Administration about building the staircase and a passageway between two offices, according to a spokeswoman for the department.
The suggestion was dropped, but Vos doesn't say how long it took for the bureau chief to stop laughing.
