Measure seeking repeal of church-state constitutional clause passes in Oklahoma House
OKLAHOMA CITY — A proposed ballot initiative that would repeal a section of the state Constitution which prohibits use of state assets for religious purposes was approved Wednesday by the Oklahoma House of Representatives.
Representative Emily Virgin
The House just spent the first hour and a half of today’s session debating a repeal of the state constitution’s requirement of the separation of the church and state. Meanwhile, schools across the state are shortening their school weeks, cutting bus routes and extracurricular activities, and may not be able to finish the school year because of a lack of funding.
