OKLAHOMA CITY – The Supreme Court is one step closer to making a decision about a state question on tornado shelters in public schools Monday.

Court officials held conferences with attorneys representing the group, Take Shelter Oklahoma, and attorneys for the state attorney general, Scott Pruitt.

Members of Take Shelter Oklahoma are trying to get enough signatures to put a $500 million bond issue on school storm shelters to a vote of the people.

The group is suing the AG over his rewrite of the ballot title.

Group members allege Pruitt put an unfair emphasis on the franchise tax in his rewrite.

The bond money would be used to help local school districts construct safe rooms and it would be paid back using the state franchise tax.

Monday afternoon the Supreme Court scheduled the hearing for Dec. 10.
