Bill To Help Military Communities Passes Senate

Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma cities near military bases would get help paying for infrastructure needs under a bill approved by the Senate Wednesday.

The bill now goes to the House, where passage is expected, and then to Governor Brad Henry's desk.

The measure would authorize state-financed bond issues of up to $100 million statewide for a loan program.

The money would go to school districts and cities already providing services to military bases targeted for expansion under the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure Commission review.

The bases are Fort Sill in Lawton, Vance Air Force Base in Enid, Tinker Air Force Base in Midwest City and Altus Air Force Base.
