Fallin Vetoes 2 Bills, Signs 4 Dozen Others
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Governor Mary Fallin has vetoed two bills and signed more than four dozen others less than a week after lawmakers adjourned the 2013 legislative session.
Fallin on Wednesday vetoed a bill that would have moved all of the employees of the Oklahoma Military Department into the "classified" system of state employment. Fallin said in a veto statement this move could result in additional costs to the state and complicate a pending lawsuit in the Oklahoma Supreme Court.
She also vetoed another bill that would have overturned Oklahoma Department of Labor rules regarding asbestos removal training.
Among the more than four dozen bills Fallin signed into law on Wednesday was a measure that allows private schools to develop policies to allow firearms on campuses and school buses.
