Renovate Committee Hearing Rooms - Dirksen Building & Russell Building

This project was begun in fiscal year 1991 and involves the restoration, renovation and improvements to Senate hearing rooms
in Russell and Dirksen Buildings. It is slated for completion by the end of 1997, providing access to rooms is available. All Dirksen
Building hearing rooms have been renovated. The work is being accomplished by temporary employees under the supervision of the
Senate Office Buildings. Due to present efforts to cut back on costs, the scope of renovations will be reduced to that work which is
needed for basic maintenance and work which is vital for the effective use of the remaining rooms. A review of the remaining rooms,
which are predominately in the Russell building indicates that, in general, less work will be required in these spaces than the previously
renovated Dirksen rooms. This project will be completed as the Russell Rooms become available.
