Free the Dome | Speaker.gov

More than two years ago, work began to completely restore the greatest symbol of democracy in the world—the U.S. Capitol dome. Now, after having thousands of cast-iron cracks fixed, receiving a shiny new coat of paint, and being hidden beneath 52 miles of scaffold pipe, the Dome is almost ready to be freed. 

In the 36-second video above, Speaker Ryan and Stephen Ayers, the Architect of the Capitol, take an up-close look at the dome project, which is set to be completed on time and under budget.
