Tulsa County would like to have a say in an interim study of the response to the historic Arkansas River flooding in May and June. County Governmental Affairs Director Terry Simonson says they should look at legislative action that would be helpful in a future event.

Saying every community along the river was impacted to some extent by the floods, Jenks Representative Lonnie Sims has requested an interim flood study. He wants federal, state, local governments, private entities, and all stakeholders involved. The House Speaker must okay such a study.
