OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A bill to further restrict the use of abortion inducing drugs in Oklahoma has overwhelmingly cleared the Oklahoma House.
The House voted 81-8 Monday for the bill by Edmond Republican Rep. Randy Grau. Grau's previous attempt to regulate the use of the drugs was struck down by the Oklahoma Supreme Court last year as unconstitutional.
Grau contends the state's high court erred, and his bill specifically states its intent is to "overrule the decision of the Oklahoma Supreme Court."

Tulsa's current flood standard is for a flood with a 1 percent chance of happening in a given year. That floodplain is shown in blue.
Tulsa city officials have started a discussion on changing Arkansas River flood regulations.
Tulsa’s current standard is construction must be 1 foot above the level of a flood with a 1 percent chance of happening any given year. The city could instead base the standard on the 1986 flood, which was 50 percent larger.
Tulsa Police started a municipal warrant sweep today that will go on all week.
