The Capitol building is located in Sacramento, California.   The building is based on the U.S. Capitol building in Washington D.C.

The building houses the bicameral state legislature and the office of the governor.   The California Senate chamber seats its forty members in a large chamber room decorated in red, which is a reference to the British House of Lords.   The California Assembly chamber is located at the opposite end of the building.   Its green tones are based on those of the British House of Commons.
