Lawmakers sweating heat with a Capitol 'h'

Updated:
(Oklahoma City-AP) -- The heat is still on at the Capitol. The air conditioner is out for the third straight day.

As temperatures reach the century mark in Oklahoma City, temperatures have been recorded in excess of 90 degrees inside the Capitol.

Lawmakers and lobbyists who ordinarily are dressed in suits have dressed down and are now clad in sport shirts, slacks and shorts to deal with the heat.

Fans have been distributed to offices throughout the Capitol to provide circulation and many offices are vacant.

Pam Warren is director of the Department of Central Services. Warren's office says the air conditioning should be fixed sometime this afternoon.

There have been no reports of heat strokes or physical problems.
