OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma lawmakers have begun the process of appropriating millions of dollars in emergency funds to help pay the cost of recovering from tornadoes that have ravaged parts of central Oklahoma.
Separate committees of the House and Senate on Tuesday approved a plan to appropriate $45 million from the state's Rainy Day Constitutional Reserve Fund. The money will go to the State Emergency Fund to help recover from a massive tornado that struck Moore on Monday, killing at least 24 people. A separate tornado on Sunday left two dead in Shawnee.
Republican Sen. Clark Jolley of Edmond says the money will help the Department of Emergency Management match disaster aid from the Federal Emergency Management Agency or to pay costs not covered by federal dollars.
