Record-Keeping Failure Could Cost Oklahoma Counties

"Alex Cameron of the Oklahoma Impact Team at KWTV News 9 in Oklahoma City and KOTV News on 6 in Tulsa found that Oklahoma counties’ lax record-keeping could cost them millions of dollars in repaid disaster-assistance funds to FEMA. Twelve counties had serious issues with paperwork and couldn’t document how they spent money they received for ice storms, tornadoes and flooding. The counties say they spent the money correctly but didn’t keep proper paperwork because they had satisfied the state’s standards."
