Eyeglass Issue Placed on November Ballot

Governor Mary Fallin on Monday signed an election proclamation that places on the November 6 general election ballot the question that would allow optometrists and eyeglass retailers to operate in large retail stores. Fallin's office says backers of the issue have collected enough signatures to qualify for a statewide vote and all of the other procedural requirements of state law have been met. The issue, if approved by a majority of voters, would amend the state constitution to allow optometrists or opticians to practice in retail establishments and would allow the Legislature to regulate them.
