photoblog image Utah State Capitol

Utah State Capitol

The Utah State Capitol building. While I was there I was shocked to learn that the Utah State Legislature is only in session for a grand total of 6 weeks a year. Apparently all of the states business and legislation can be conducted in 6 weeks.

Crikey, Charles...a tent would be sufficient if it was to be used only 6 weeks in a year.
Charles Dastodd: lol. well, I imagine all the members have their offices, and the Governor and his staff probably have offices too. I am not sure how many days a year the members work, but it is just their legislative session that only lasts 6 weeks. but still, you would think a state would have more business to conduct than that wink
they get some wonderful holidays there then, nice shot Charles

What a waste of this beautiful building ... only 6 weeks! Beautiful architecture and I like the way you've framed it.

That shocks me, too, Charles. I bet they get paid for 52, however, right?! I like your POV on this capitol building.

Where do I get a job like that? But without becoming a politician? =) Great shot of the building - I like all the angles and curves you've captured.

I must move there then. Clearly there is no crime or otherwise to legislate on smile

It sounds a bit like the UK Parliament! Unless its Prime Minster's Question time or the MPs discussing their pay, the place is sometimes deserted! Superb architecture here.

Nice PoV and very interesting information! smile
Great building, i like the arcitecture and perspective of this photograph! Great shot!
Fine capture. WXonderfully framed!
Great shot Charles, it is equal and opposite to the one from Albert today at http://albertperpinya.shutterchance.com/
6 weeks , lunches inclued !!?? In every country the deal is the same ! Many money , less work ! Phil.
It is a beautiful building; did you go inside also? I like the perspective here, and the detail on the underside of the walkway. The typical capitol pictures don't capture that at all.
Charles Dastodd: I didn't go inside but wish I had tried. I just had one day of sightseeing since I was going to be at a conference the rest of the time, so I just pushed ahead from one thing to the next smile
Good POV Charles..Hard to believe that its all sorted in 6 weeks.
Six weeks? Sheesh, sounds like a good job to have.
excellent detail

They probably don't have enough things to legislate. What a good job it is, 6 weeks out of the year.
Charles Dastodd: I don't think they have much of a legislative agenda. I could be mistaken, but the entire state only has like 3 million people.

Nice picture! I like the composition and the angle.

I work for the Canadian parliament and (unfortunately for me!) the Parliament sits much longer!
