Bills Could Protect Oklahoma Groups Who Open Buildings For Tornado Shelters

Posted: Updated:

Two new bills proposed at the state capitol would protect businesses, schools and churches that open their doors to the public during severe weather.

Both bills say no one can be held liable if someone is hurt or killed during a storm.

The bills were proposed after lawmakers heard from people who had been turned away, while trying to seek shelter during last year's violent storms.

The Senate will vote on both bills.

If either or both pass, the next stop would be Gov. Mary Fallin's desk.
