The article reports the decision of Oklahoma County commissioners not to issue $30 million in authorized bonds for increased security and safety around Tinker Air Force Base. According to Commissioner Brent Rinehart, he and his colleagues voted to rescind the authorization because the projects to be funded by the bonds are complete. Instead, the county will use the remaining proceeds from the sale of general obligation bonds to clear land around an aircraft fuel control facility that is not within the base's main gate.
