OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – An Oklahoma legislator is proposing a measure that would protect churches from lawsuits if someone is injured when they open their doors as disaster shelters.

Cleveland tells Oklahoma City television station KWTV that he wants to provide an incentive for more entities to help.
