As directed by state law, the Capitol Building Advisory Committee has developed criteria and a procedure for the evaluation of proposals for the gift or loan of objects of art and memorials for placement in the public areas of the Capitol or on its surrounding grounds on a permanent or temporary basis. After evaluating a proposal for art in the public areas of the Capitol, the Advisory Committee is required to present its recommendations to the General Assembly's Capital Development Committee.

A proposal may not proceed without a favorable recommendation from the Advisory Committee. The Capital Development Committee is required to evaluate the Advisory Committee's recommendation and may make a favorable recommendation to the General Assembly by joint resolution during the next annual legislative session. A proposal affecting the grounds surrounding the Capitol must receive approval from the Governor in addition to the Capital Development Committee.
