A bill that would require new hotels and motels to post tornado safety information in every room is moving forward.

The Oklahoma House of Representatives passed House Bill 3016 on Monday.

The bill, authored by Rep. Denise Crosswhite Hader (R-Piedmont) and coauthored by Sen. Stephanie Bice (R-Oklahoma City), would require the information from the State Board of Health to include the county, the hotel's location on a state map, recommended safety precautions and the date and time of local tornado siren testing

The bill now heads to the Senate for consideration.
