Okla. governor proposes bond issue to fix Capitol
Question of the Day
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Gov. Mary Fallin is proposing a bond issue to repair the state’s nearly century-old Capitol building.
Fallin announced the proposal Monday as she delivered her State of the State address at the start of the 2014 Oklahoma Legislature.
Fallin says the building has become a safety hazard. She says the building’s exterior is falling apart to the point where officials worry about state employees and visitors - including teachers and students on field trips - being hit by falling pieces of the facade.
She says raw sewage is leaking into the Capitol basement. On good days, she says, visitors can only see the disrepair. On bad days, they can smell it.
Fallin says lawmakers must repair the People’s House, and the best way to do it is a bond issue.
