The old chairs that House members of the state Legislature sat in for more than 100 years have been auctioned off to current and former lawmakers. The 100 chairs which were replaced for the 2021 session were sold last week by silent auction for bids ranging from $125 to $1,100 with the proceeds going into the state’s general fund. The bidding was open to current and former lawmakers for the chairs that were not part of the state’s general inventory but rather furniture the House controls. The top 100 bidders were selected for the 100 House chairs.
