Lead in text: 
"When it comes to making sure that school kids have access to tornado shelters, Oklahoma’s state government has kept its distance. The state does not require public schools to install shelters, does not keep track of which schools have them, has provided limited state tax dollars to build them and has not assessed the cost of installing them statewide."
