The Oklahoma Public Service Corporation Jurisdiction Amendment, also known as State Question 24, was on the November 8, 1910 ballot in Oklahoma as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was defeated. The measure would have authorized railroad, transportation and transmission companies organized under Oklahoma law to transfer to or consolidate with companies organized in other states or the United States, but provided that the state courts of Oklahoma retained jurisdiction over any controversies.
