Gov. Mary Fallin has appointed three people to a committee that will oversee spending on repairs to Oklahoma's nearly century-old state Capitol.

Fallin said Friday she had named David Thompson, Phil Kennedy and Steve Mason to the State Capitol Repair Expenditure Oversight Committee. They will join a group of state lawmakers named by House Speaker Jeff Hickman and Senate President Pro Tem Brian Bingman.

Thompson, of Edmond, will serve as chairman. He's the president and chief executive officer of InvesTrust, a financial planning company. Kennedy, of Lawton, is the owner and chief executive officer of Comanche Home Center, a retail building material supplier. Mason, ofOklahoma City, is president of Bluebird Consulting, an engineering firm.

Legislation signed by Fallin authorized a $120 million bond issue for Capitol repairs.
