Capitol Dome in D.C. undergoes renovations

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Capitol in Washington is broken -- and we're not talking politics, here.

There are more than 1,000 cracks and broken cast iron crates in the U.S. Capitol dome. Soon, there will be a Capitol cover-up.

Workers are installing rows of scaffolding around the dome, so they can strip the paint and repair the iron. It's part of a two-year $60 million renovation.

The last time the Capitol had a major make-over was in 1960.
