A tangle of wires – some old, some relatively new – in the garage at the state Capitol in Sacramento on Tuesday, April 12, 2016.

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.
