Oklahoma to get more Homeland Security funds

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The state will be getting $29.9-million in federal homeland security funds.

Office of Homeland Security director Kerry Pettingill says the money will be used to prevent a terrorist attack, reduce Oklahoma's vulnerability to an attack and prepare on how to respond to an attack.

More than half of the federal funds – $15.5-million -- will go to the State Homeland Security Program.

Of that, $12-million will be dedicated to expanding a statewide communications program.

Henry says the Office of Homeland Security had made great strides in the area of responding and recovering from a terrorist attack. He said the focus in 2005 will be on preventing an attack and reducing the state's vulnerabilities.
