Tour Of U.S. Capitol On Crapoâ??s â??Capitol Watchâ??

Washington, DC â?? August is a busy tourist time for Washington, D.C., and many Idahoans have had the opportunity to visit the U.S. Capitol. Idaho Senator Mike Crapo has made the Capitol the centerpiece for the upcoming August â??Capitol Watchâ?? program, which will air on Tuesday, August 10, 2004, at 7:00 p.m. Mountain/6:00 p.m. Pacific. The program airs statewide on the public access channel on many Idaho cable television systems on the second Tuesday of each month.â??The U.S. Capitol is one of the most visited buildings in the world, even after the terrorist attacks slowed tourism to Washington, D.C.,â?? Crapo said. â??Too often itâ??s easy to overlook some of the history and details, and it is exciting to be able to bring this tour to Idahoans in their own homes. Each year my office arranges tours for Idahoans who visit the nationâ??s capital, and this is one more way to let people know more about the history of this building.â??â??Capitol Watchâ?? airs in the following cities over the following cable channels:Boise/Nampa/Caldwell11Coeur dâ??Alene19Idaho City37Idaho Falls/Blackfoot19Lewiston13Moscow11Pocatello22Twin Falls60 The program is sponsored by the Idaho Cable Telecommunications Association (ICTA) and local cable systems throughout Idaho.
