OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma: Lawmakers in Oklahoma ended legislative session on May 28, 2010, without passing any initiative legislation[1][2].

During the session, only two bills dealing with the state's initiative process were considered by legislators. The first bill that was considered dealt with pay-per signature[3]. Lawmakers were attempting to have the state ban initiative campaigns from paying petition circulators by the signature. The bill died in committee without seeing a floor vote in the Legislature[4].

Lawmakers also considered a bill requiring voter information guides. The guide would have been required for any election with a statewide ballot measure.[5]. The bill died in committee without seeing a floor vote in the Legislature[6].
