MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama lawmakers have approved a bill to steer $15 million to help rebuilt a tornado-ravaged high school and five other schools struck by storms.
Al.com reports that the Alabama House of Representatives approved the bill on Tuesday. It now moves to the Senate.
If approved, it would authorize the Alabama Public School and College Authority to issue up to $30 million in bonds for rebuilding storm-struck schools.
The bill would send $15 million to Murphy to repair damage caused by a 2012 Christmas Day tornado. The other $15 million would be distributed to schools damaged by tornadoes on April 27, 2011.
