Oklahoma lawmakers work to override tribal compact vetoes
(KTEN) — The regular session of the Oklahoma Legislature ended on May 26.
Before the final gavel sounded, the Oklahoma House and Senate passed extensions for tobacco and car tag compacts with tribal nations. But Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt vetoed those measures.
Now lawmakers are back meeting in a special session. On Monday, they voted to override the governor's veto of House Bill 1005, which would extend a motor vehicle registration agreement between the state and tribal governments.
Stitt also vetoed Senate Bill 26, which would extend tribal-state tobacco compacts for another year, but the Senate must vote on an override before the House can vote.
The Senate is not scheduled to return until Monday, June 26.
