Oklahoma law authorizing virtual charter school is challenged in court

Dec. 5, 2012
Lawyer argues that the legislation violates state constitution

From The Daily Oklahoman: An attorney is challenging Oklahoma legislation that authorizes creation of a virtual charter school, arguing that it violates a constitutional prohibition on placing multiple subjects into a single bill. In addition to authorizing the virtual charter school, the law allocates $30 million for public school textbooks. Oklahoma City attorney Jerry Fent argued before a state Supreme Court referee that the measure should be struck down. But Assistant Attorney General Nancy Zerr contends the legislation does not violate the one-subject rule because both of its elementary fall under the category of education.
