Count: 37 bills have be­come law

The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - METRO | STATE -

Gov. Mary Fallin has signed 37 bills into law in reg­u­lar ses­sion, not in­clud­ing spe­cial ses­sion mea­sures that would raise rev­enue and send more money to pub­lic ed­u­ca­tion.

Most of the bills, how­ever, are typ­i­cal leg­isla­tive fare. On Thurs­day, one of the 18 bills she signed that day set min­i­mum in­spec­tion guide­lines for hot wa­ter heaters.

So far, Fallin hasn’t ve­toed any of the bills sent to her desk by law­mak­ers, but the pace of leg­is­la­tion re­ceiv­ing fi­nal pas­sage in the House or Se­nate is about to get faster.

The last com­mit­tee dead­lines have ex­pired, so law­mak­ers are now try­ing to get their re­main­ing bills on the floor. The Leg­is­la­ture still has work to do on the Fis­cal Year 2019 bud­get that be­gins July 1.
