Pennsylvania Capitol Dome Roof Leak? Fix statehouse roofs!

Fix the Capitol Roof Now! Repair the ceiling after the roof is water-tight. Summer Liquidity Shower. Drips into Capitol Rotunda, June 2013.

“We didn’t have a leak in that area before,” Thompson said. “We have our facility folks investigating to see if it is a leak. But we did have sideways rain yesterday so it might have been able to get up in the flashing of the roof.”
