With Governor Sam Brownback calling a special session to discuss the States school funding crisis, we took an inside look into the room where all the debates will be held starting June 23.
Built in the West wing of the Kansas State Capitol in the late 1880s, it was the second of four wings to be completed. The hall features marble, gold leaf and pink columns made from faux marble surrounding the room.
On the walls are ten Kansas men prominent in the abolitionist, or free-state, movement in Kansas.
Outside the main room are small waiting areas with bathrooms and closets.
