Staffers swelter after AC goes down in General Assembly Building

Rosalind Helderman

Talk about legislative hot air!

The air conditioning is broken in the General Assembly Building, according to a note being circulated among staff who work in the office building. The note from the Department of General Services indicates that there's a short in the building's cooling fan tower and the AC is likely to be down for several days.

The building, next to the State Capitol, is home to legislative offices, staff of the Senate finance and House appropriations committees, the Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission and various other offices.

It's been a warm couple of days in Richmond and no relief is scheduled today, so it's got to be getting pretty warm in the GAB.

Legislators moved into the 400,000-square-foot GAB in 1978 and they have talked about tearing the building down for years. It has a variety of problems, including a leaky roof and on-going electrical and ventilation issues.
