UPDATED: Troopers evict 9 protesters, ban them from Capitol

Nearly 30 activists upset by pending state budget cuts tried to camp out a fourth straight night Saturday in the state Capitol Rotunda. The State Patrol forcibly ended the "sleep-in" around 9 p.m. About nine people refused to leave when asked by troopers and the Department of General Administration. So troopers physically lifted them out the door to the Capitol steps and issued warnings.
