OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin's technology czar is scheduled to brief a legislative panel on the governor's plan to save money for public schools through consolidated information technology systems.

Oklahoma Chief Information Officer Alex Pettit is expected to outline the governor's "Open Range" plan Thursday before the House Government Modernization Committee.

According to the Office of Management and Enterprise Services, a plan implemented by lawmakers last year to consolidate the information technology functions of various state agencies is expected to save the state about $40 million annually.
