That drew a stern chastisement from one of the people on the committee, arguing that estimates had the cost at nowhere near $100 million – no, far less.

Today’s headline in the Idaho Statesman: “Capitol renovation boosts budget to $122.5 million.” Up from a recent previous estimate of $120 million.

Couldn’t help noticing . . .
