Governor Brad Henry is urging the state Medical Examiners office to make as many of the reforms as possible included in two bills he has vetoed. The bills were vetoed after the governor was briefed on a corruption investigation tied to those pieces of legislation. More than 300 people filed for political office on the first day of a three day period for candidates to make their intentions official. Even though the state Transportation Department received a $28-million budget cut for the new fiscal year, no road or bridge projects will be impacted. That’s because the agency got permission for a $215-million bond issue to finance the projects. Sales taxes are generating increased revenue for municipalities across the state. The first time that has happened in nearly a year. Now one city wants to take over the job of collecting those taxes, saying they can do a better job than the state.
