County commissioners applaud Fallin

— Members of the Association of County Commissioners of Oklahoma met recently with Gov. Mary Fallin at the state Capitol to commend her for legislation she signed in 2012 to allocate 5 percent of the state motor vehicle collection tax to the County Improvements for Roads and Bridges Fund. The increased revenue will allow counties across Oklahoma to participate in the Bridge Improvement and Turnpike Modernization Plan announced by Fallin in 2011 that uses more than 2,000 recycled beams from the former Interstate 40 Crosstown Expressway in Oklahoma City to rebuild or construct more than 300 county bridges. The beams, already taken to 21 pickup sites across the state, are expected to save counties more than $4.25 million. The delegation also presented an appreciation plaque to Fallin at a ceremony in the Blue Room.
