OKLAHOMA CITY -

An organization that wants to place storm shelters in Oklahoma's public schools says it's abandoning the effort and will launch a second petition following the Oklahoma Supreme Court's decision to stand by an earlier ruling in the case.

An attorney for Take Shelter Oklahoma, David Slane, announced the group's plan Monday after the state's highest court handed down its ruling on State Question 767. The group started gathering signatures for the petition after seven children were killed in May by a tornado that slammed into Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore.

The Supreme Court ruled earlier this month the group had 90 days to collect enough signatures to get the measure on the ballot but that a ballot title rewritten by the attorney general's office could make clear the cost.
