PHIL CAMPBELL, AL (WAFF) -

Several Alabama schools destroyed by the tornado outbreak on April 27, 2011 are one step closer to getting additional aid.

Tuesday night, the House passed a bill approving the sale of $30-million in bonds to help rebuild six storm damaged schools.

Phil Campbell high school is on that list.

If the Senate goes along and the governor signs it, Phil Campbell would get a little more than $6-million to help rebuild their school.

Crews have been working non-stop on the school since last July.

Franklin County Superintendent Gary Williams said if passed, he hopes this money would used to replace things they had to cut out due to lack of funding.

"On our original bid we had to cut out some things because our bid was too high for our budget, so with this money maybe we can ask for things back," he said. "I really don't know how we can use the money that's something we're trying to find out."

House Bill 517 will now go before the Senate. There are four meeting days left this session.
