Oklahoma's financial problems appear to be getting worse. New figures show the state's rainy day fund is drying up.

It was created in 1985 to "help" during rough financial times. But over the past two years, state lawmakers have withdrawn more than $300-million.

That leaves just $36-million for the new fiscal year which begins July 1st.
