A measure stating Oklahoma’s desire for a Constitutional Convention won final approval Tuesday by the state Senate.
House members passed Senate Joint Resolution 4 last week with amendments, meaning it needed another vote by senators.
Sen. Anthony Sykes was among the 16 "No" votes.
"I do not trust the other state legislatures to be of like mind," Sykes said. "Certainly, Oklahoma is one of the more conservative states in America, and I don't think we can do as good a job as our Founding Fathers did."
