Weather and water leaks damaged steps on the west side of the Missouri Capitol, seen here in a March 2009 photo. Several sections are still blocked off from use. Repair for the building’s west side stairs may cost as much as $1.37 million. Some lawmakers want to delay the project, but other state officials say fixing the steps now will prevent even higher costs in the future.
