Potential Gubernatorial Candidates Address Initiative Process Forum

Oklahoma’s initiative process is in serious need of reform, said the head of Oklahomans for Initiative Rights.
“We have the toughest requirements in the country and have not had any initiative qualify for the ballot in recent years,” said Norma Sapp, executive director OIR.
Scholars, journalists, and political leaders – including two potential 2010 Republican candidates for governor – meet Saturday, Nov. 15, at the Renaissance Convention Center Hotel in downtown Oklahoma City to discuss ways to reform Oklahoma’s initiative process as part of a forum hosted by Oklahomans for Initiative Rights.
The conference, entitled “Reforming the Reform Process: How to Restore Oklahoma’s Initiative,” features national experts on initiative and referendum as well as Oklahoma leaders, including Bob Sullivan, a 2006 GOP candidate for governor and State Sen. Randy Brogdon (R-Owasso), both of whom have been rumored to be considering a run for governor in 2010.
