HUD employees in Oklahoma City to decide on move

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Some Department of Housing and Urban Development employees who survived the 1995 federal building bombing have until April 28th to decide if they'll move into the new federal facility.

The 11 workers are the last holdouts among hundreds of federal employees who are working in the building that opened in 2004 as a replacement for the Alfred -P- Murrah Federal Building.

Those employees don't want to relocate to offices adjacent to the site of the terror attack that killed many of their co-workers.

Agency spokesman Jerry Brown says the employees have been asked to consider moving into the federal building so all employees are in the same place. Brown says workers who don't want to move can appeal the decision or transfer to a department office in another state.

Grant specialist Teresa Cook wasn't hurt during the bombing, but lost 35 co-workers.

She says she's never been able to return to the bombing site and suffers from heart palpitations and panic attacks.
