Henry noncommittal on spending of stimulus funds

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - After he and fellow governors meet with the
president, Gov. Brad Henry remains noncommittal about how Oklahoma
might spend more than $2 billion in federal stimulus dollars.

Henry tells the Tulsa World's Washington bureau that while he
appreciates the efforts of President Barack Obama to try and
provide a jolt to the nation's economy, there is some concern that
states could end up in a bind if they accept some funds from the
stimulus package.

Henry says it's possible Oklahoma could bypass taking some of
those funds if it wouldn't benefit the state's economy, but he
didn't think that would happen.

He says that state officials will evaluate all of the details of
the bill with an eye toward what is good for Oklahoma.
