Oklahoma is getting more than $14-million to prepare against a bioterrorism attack.

The money comes from federal funds Congress approved in January. Most states, including Oklahoma will use the money for improving disease tracking.

A state epidemiologist says the money will be used to hire about 30-people to investigate infectious disease outbreaks.
