Oklahoma Governor Signs Bill to Improve State Capitol

State-owned infrastructure and buildings, such as the State Capitol, need to be maintained in order to maintain a welcoming and professional look. That is why Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin just signed the infrastructure improvement plan for the State of Oklahoma.

The new infrastructure improvement plan allocates budget funds to maintaining and caring for the state Capitol and other state-owned property. House Bill 1910 by House Speaker T. W. Shannon allows the state to liquidate its underutilized assets and also provides funds for repairing principal assets.

Based on the infrastructure improvement plan, the state Capitol will be repaired first. Then, an eight-year plan will initiate the study and identification of other state-owned buildings that need repair and maintenance. The budget for the repairs and renovation of the State Capitol will be $60 million and will be taken from the $7.2 billion budget for the Fiscal Year 2014.

According to House Speaker Shannon, the improvement plan will showcase the state’s commitment to becoming a better steward of the people’s buildings and taxpayers’ money.
