OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt's office says the ballot title of an initiative petition to build storm shelters in public schools complies with state law.

Pruitt's office had five days from the date the petition was filed to make any changes needed to the ballot title. The office submitted a letter to the Secretary of State's Office Thursday that says the ballot title for State Question 774 complies with applicable laws.

Supporters planned to begin collecting signatures to have the measure placed on the November ballot once the five-day period expired. Organizers have 90 days to collect the signatures of at least 155,000 Oklahoma voters.

The proposal comes more than a year after a tornado struck Moore on May 20, 2013, killing seven children at the Plaza Towers Elementary School.
