Security Beefs Up Presence At The Pa Capitol Amid Plans For Armed Marches

01.12.21 | Terry Diener

Capitol police, more heavily armed than usual, were observed in and around the building on Monday as the House of Representatives convened for some organizational sessions this week.
 
The Senate is not due back into session until the week of Jan. 25, which is when the House is scheduled to return as well after this week.
 
Due to the pandemic, the Capitol in Harrisburg, has been closed to visitors since December 7. Only employees and people with badge keycard credentials are permitted inside. 
 
The U.S. Capitol was breached by rioters last week. Since then, some social media have banned President Trump and other conservatives from using their platforms.
 
Reports claim there are plans for “armed marches” at state capitals in the coming days.
