A tangle of wires – some old, some relatively new – in the garage at the state Capitol in Sacramento on Tuesday, April 12, 2016. Building a new Capitol annex is proposed in budget talks that will pick up momentum next month. State records show that maintaining the 65-year-old annex has cost millions of dollars annually. Officials, though, are reluctant to go into detail about the building’s problems, citing security concerns, or venture an idea about what a replacement annex might look like.
