BY MICHAEL MCNUTT email@example.comSix months after Oklahomans sent supplies to help New York residents battered by Hurricane Sandy, New Yorkers are returning the favor.

“This is our way of paying it forward,” Goldfeder told The Oklahoman.
Senate approves relief measure
The Senate approved a bill Wednesday that would withdraw $45 million from the state's Rainy Day Fund to help reimburse state agencies, local communities and counties for expenses caused by disasters, particularly this week's tornadoes.
At stake: House Bill 1917 would require every state agency that receives federal funding to report and prioritize it, as well as develop a contingency plan in preparation for a 25 percent cut in federal funds.
• What happened: Passed the House, 67-23.
• What's next: A parliamentary action was taken to possibly bring it up for another vote in the House.
• At stake: House Bill 1622 would allow a person with an Oklahoma handgun permit to carry a firearm on private elementary or private secondary school property if a policy has been adopted by the private school.
• What happened: Passed the House 69-21.
• What's next: Goes to the Senate.
