"Unless we find a global solution, we'll have everyone fighting for the space," Nicholas said.
The executive offices would be in addition to an 80,000 square foot state office building on the block that formerly housed a Safeway grocery store and residences west of the Capitol.
Mead said at the time it was not right to be spending money on a new office building given the constrained economy.
State Senate Majority Floor Leader Phil Nicholas said there simply won't be room. The elected officials' offices, because of the Capitol's age and type of structure, can't be expanded, Nicholas added.
Meanwhile, instead of planning for one large state office building, legislative leaders are talking about constructing a smaller executive office building on the state owned site formerly occupied by St. Mary's School east of the Capitol.
The Legislative Management Council voted on July 12 to restart work on the office building plans. The council includes most of the top leaders in the House and Senate.
state agencies housed all over Cheyenne in leased office space at the cost of about $6 million per year.
Meanwhile, Mead spokesman Renny MacKay said the governor is interested in hearing the recommendations concerning the Capitol renovation and government office construction plans.
This time, though, the legislators requested the planning and money be included in a separate bill rather than as budget item the governor could ignore.
The Legislature has set aside $105 million for the Capitol renovation and other projects.

Nicholas said the Capitol renovation and new executive office building would take care of the current occupants of the Capitol building, and the new, larger state office building could be constructed in the distant future.

The Legislature, meanwhile, needs more meeting rooms.
Former Gov. Dave Freudenthal also was reluctant to move ahead with the new office building because of agency budget cuts then in progress.
elected officials want to remain in the Capitol building after the renovation.
The state has acquired more property in the Capitol building complex since original planning began, which gives the lawmakers more options.
That plan ran aground in 2012 when Mead withheld the $4.4 million the Legislature included in the budget for design of the new office building.
The Legislature's original plan was to first build a 200,000 square foot state office building on the former Safeway site. The new building would have been a temporary home for the Legislature and other displaced Capitol building agency employees and officials during renovation of the Capitol. It also would have been a permanent home for Nike Cortez Qs Compton

If your comment was not approved, perhaps.
The lawmakers' thinking is that the smaller, executive office building could include the elected officials and their staffs, including Gov. Matt Mead's policy analysts who are now working out of the Herschler Building north of the Capitol.
Although the governor can veto the bill, the Legislature has the option of attempting a two thirds majority vote to override the chief executive's veto.
Nicholas said it is difficult in general for governors to approve the construction of new government buildings.

Work on the Capitol is expected to begin after the 2015 legislative session, at the earliest.
