Shurden Defeated on Right-to-Work Re-do

Senator Shurden of Henryetta had his bill calling for a revote on the Right-to-Work issue killed in committee this week. Shurden, an oddity even in the Oklahoma Legislature, wasn't happy with the passage of Right-to-Work in a statewide vote a couple of years ago so he thought we might like to spend a few million on a re-do vote. Fortunately, the Legislature didn't go along. The State Chamber pulled out the stops to kill Shurden's bill.

Shurden is still trying to get a similar re-do vote on the cockfighting ban Oklahomans also passed recently. Shurden just doesn't like the way we are voting when we get a chance.
