An upcoming recommendation from a state panel indicates that security at the Minnesota Capitol should increase at the seat of government and 16 other area buidlings, The Associated Press reported Friday.
The panel is led by Lt. Gov. Yvonne Prettner Solon and includes legislators, law enforcement leaders and judicial branch designees.
Expected recommendations includes the increase of two state troopers to 12 and growth of security personnel from 40 to 67.
The panel will finalize its recommendations and present its findings and call to action during the 2013 Legislative session.
According to The AP, the report did not address metal detectors at the Minnesota Capitol. Currently visitors and staff aren't required to pass through them.
