Oklahoma's Supreme Court

Two stories in today's The Oklahoman about rulings from Oklahoma's Supreme Court:

Oklahoma Supreme Court rules some court fees unconstitutional

Bravo! to them for stating in their ruling: "The courts may not be a tax collector for the executive branch of government."

Oklahoma Supreme Court referee hears arguments in line-item veto lawsuit
"A state Supreme Court referee will issue a report to the high court on a second lawsuit filed over Gov. Brad Henry's use of the line-item veto."
I hope the report favors keeping the line-item veto, which can serve as a check on the Legislature's profligacy.
