    Slow Start For Ardmore Band As Director Search Continues

    ARDMORE, OK -- For band students, the last few weeks for summer are reserved for rehearsals to gear up for the fall marching band season. But one Texoma marching band has yet to hit the field and it has some people in the community concerned. As the calendar flips closer to August, marching bands across Texoma turn parking lots into football fields to practice. But instead of the sounds of a band rehearsal in front of Noble Stadium in Ardmore it's dead silent. "There's a little bit of a conce...More >>

WASHINGTON, D.C. -

 U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), senior member of the Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee, today congratulated the Oklahoma Department of Transportation.

The department was awarded a $2 million grant through the U.S. Department of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration's Emergency Relief (ER) program.

The grant will help restore highways and roads damaged by tornadoes in 2013.

The ER program helps states rebuild federal highways and roads damaged by natural disasters or external causes, and is authorized and funded through the two year surface transportation bill (MAP-21) authored by Inhofe and EPW Chairman Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) in 2012.

 

 

"Today the State of Oklahoma can continue our recovery with the appropriate assurance and assistance from the federal government," said Inhofe. "This grant will help restore the damage to I-35 caused from last year's tornadoes and will help citizens and businesses get back on the road. It is clear that the Emergency Relief program is a critical component needed for the federal government to help states recover from devastating natural disasters like we experienced in Oklahoma last summer. I am proud that the Emergency Relief program is supporting states across the country exactly how it was intended to."
