Blowback against the IRS is becoming more local.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Officials at two hospitals say they're treating nearly 60 patients, including more than a dozen children, after a massive tornado hit suburban Oklahoma City.
Integris Southwest Medical Center spokeswoman Brooke Cayot (KAY'-ot) said 10 of 37 patients being treated at that facility Monday are listed in critical condition. Twelve are in serious and 15 others are listed in fair or good condition.
Five of the patients are children, including two who came from the Plaza Towers Elementary School, where an Associated Press photographer saw several children being pulled from the rubble. Cayot could not confirm the children's conditions.
Spokesman Scott Coppenbarger says another 20 patients of various ages are being treated at OU Medical Center. He says eight of them are children.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's legislative session is over, but the work may continue for some lawmakers.
Senate President Pro Tem Tom Dempsey says he is considering appointing at least three committees to study issues before the 2014 session.
A joint panel of Senate and House members could look into potential changes to the Medicaid health care program for the poor.
Another committee could study potential projects to be included in a bonding proposal that would be put before voters.
Dempsey said an interim committee also could look into changes to the state's regional solid waste management districts.
All of those committees would be continuing work on measures that failed to pass during the legislative session that ended Friday.
