OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Oklahoma Legislature isn't in session, but things are heating up at the state Capitol.

A water line serving the building's air conditioning system broke, prompting officials to shut down the system on Tuesday.  The water line services the cooling tower, which is a major component of the Capitol's air conditioning system.

Department of Central Services Director John Richard says computer server rooms in the building have been switched to a backup cooling system.

DCS officials say they expect to have the problem resolved by Tuesday afternoon.
