To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act (California Government Code §§ 6250), I hereby request the following records:

- Agency records that describe the insurance policy and payments for the "Columbus’ Last Appeal to Queen Isabella" statue for the years 2010-2015.
- Agency records that describe the maintenance and repair contracts and payments for the "Columbus’ Last Appeal to Queen Isabella" statue for the years 2010-2015.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

To Whom It May Concern:

In response to your California Public Records Act request (see attachment):

To my knowledge, the California State Capitol Museum/California State Parks has no records that describe the insurance policy and payments or records that describe the maintenance and repair contracts and payments for the "Columbus' Last Appeal to Queen Isabella" statue for the years 2010-2015.

The statue in the rotunda of the California State Capitol and is not the property of the California State Capitol Museum or California State Parks.

Sincerely,
Casey Hayden

Thank you so much for the response. Could you tell me who the statue belongs to? Surely someone is responsible for it.

From: Hayden, Casey@Parks

Here is the response I received from your inquiry from Assembly Joint Rules:

* The State of California is self-insured and therefor has no insurance policy on the statue.

* February 2012: California Stone & Marble Care Restoration/Matt Medina – statue cleaned through Service Order with California Department of General Services. The Joint Rules Committee has no records on the final cost, which was not reported to us by the Department of General Services.

* November 2012: Joint Rules Committee gives approval for staff of the State Capitol Museum to dust statue on a regular basis; statue is dusted yearly in January, April, July, and October (no cost).

* September 2014: Ruhkala Granite and Marble – reattached the broken finger tip of the page figure and re-doweled and reattached the little finger of the Queen ($1,500, paid by Joint Rules Committee).
