Devin Resides, sponsor of the Oklahoma Civil Rights Initiative&#8212;which would have ended race and gender preferences in public employment, public education, and public contracting&#8212;filed a motion with the Oklahoma Supreme Court April 4, 2008, to withdraw the proposed ballot measure, State Question 737, from consideration.<ref name="tulsaworld">[http://www.tulsaworld.com/news/article.aspx?articleID=20080405_1_A13_hBack65184 ''Tulsa World'': "Backers say they don't have enough valid signatures to get the proposal on a ballot," April 5, 2008]</ref>

The initiative was being challenged in court by the American Civil Liberties Union.

A bill to create a task force to review Oklahoma's petition process, with the intention of improving the initiative process, was killed in a Senate committee on March 31, 2008, after [[Oklahoma Attorney General|Oklahoma Attorney General Drew Edmondson]] lobbied Democrats against letting the bill to the floor.

"A Democratic legislator, who wants to remain anonymous for fear of political retribution, has confided to me that Attorney General Edmondson has lobbied against bills to reform the petition process," said Norma Sapp, executive director of Oklahomans for Initiative Rights. "Why? What is Edmonson afraid of? What are these Democratic Senators afraid of? This bill would simply allow legislators to find out the facts about the petition process and to discuss possible solutions. How can anyone be against having more information?"
