Copper doors at IL capitol under scrutiny again


Remember those copper doors being installed at the state building in Springfield? First it was the cost of them that caused problems, now it's safety.

One lawmaker is requesting security cameras be installed because the doors block views of the security guards inside. There have been security issues at the building in the past resulting in one shooting.

The doors are worth $670,000. Secretary of State Police and Jesse White's office say they're comfortable with the level of security the copper doors give.
