Republican State Senator Nathan Dahm of Broken Arrow has started the process for legislators to call themselves back into special session to pass legislation vetoed by Governor Mary Fallin, including the constitutional carry bill. In order to enter a special session, two-thirds of House and Senate members must agree to the special session call. "Over the last eight years we have seen decisions from the governor that are out of step with the will of the people, with the Republican party platform, and with the Constitution," said Dahm. "We have seen Governor Fallin use her veto pen to kill bills that would have brought transparency and accountability to government, reined in out-of-control agency rules, get parents more involved in education, restore our Second Amendment rights, return local control back to communities, secure parental rights in healthcare decisions, streamline and modernize state government, restore private property rights, change the budgeting system for long-term planning, and more. This would afford us the opportunity to correct those mistakes without having to wait another year to do so."
