Okla. House gives final approval to tornado relief
May 23, 2013 16:07 GMT
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The Oklahoma House has given final approval to legislation that dips into the state's constitutional reserve fund to help central Oklahoma communities impacted by devastating tornadoes.
Without debate, the House voted 95-0 Thursday for the measure that appropriates $45 million from the state's Rainy Day Fund for tornado relief. The bill passed the Senate on Wednesday by a vote of 45-0.
The reserve funds will be deposited into the State Emergency Fund and used by the Oklahoma Office of Emergency Management to aid in recovery efforts, including infrastructure repairs. Officials say the money will be used to match federal money made available to affected communities.
A massive tornado struck the city of Moore on Monday, killing at least 24 people. A separate tornado on Sunday left two dead in Shawnee.
