    Default Restricting the PA Capitol floor space

    https://triblive.com/news/pennsylvan...tunda-rallies/

    The Wolf administration is moving to limit the number of people at rallies in the Capitol Rotunda and reserving room for others to walk through when itís crowded.

    Pennlive.com reported Monday the General Services Department is capping at 450 the number of people on the floor, balconies and marble stairs.

    A walkway has been designated to provide a corridor for people to get through the crowds.

    Agency spokesman Troy Thompson says the changes are designed to ensure rallies can go on in a safe manner, and to allow other business to proceed.

    The Capitolís central space is a popular place for news conferences and gatherings of people hoping to influence public policy.

    Many attract just a few dozen people, but there are also boisterous gatherings numbering in the hundreds.

    They're only doing this because it doesn't affect the Moms crowd as they only get 20-30 people showing up.

    That would be a great result. Rotunda to the limit and overflow on the steps.

    Seems like rather convenient timing for this one.

    Bah! You guys are all paranoid I say! He saw the news reports on that collapsed porch in Wildwood, NJ over the weekend and he's concerned for our safety.

    We should talk to Metcalfe about this to see if we can get it reversed, or a waiver (not likely). We have 8 months to work it out.
