OKLAHOMA CITY - The Oklahoma House of Representatives has advanced a bill that will enhance Oklahoma residents' ability to access information on disaster recover.
House Bill 2231 will establish a new website to provide information that is more accessible and would allow input and documentation on local damage from citizens. The website would be mobile-friendly and include a state map for residents to find their respective counties and received local information from site contributors.
The bill is a collaborative effort by State Reps. Joe Dorman (D-Rush Springs), Mike Turner (R-Oklahoma City) and Jason Murphey (R-Guthrie), who believe the website will be a critical resource for recovery efforts
The lawmakers also worked the Office of Management and Enterprise Services and the Office of Emergency Management and a number of participants of a legislative study in 2012.
The measure was approved 89-1 and advanced to the Senate for approval.
