Okla. legislators enter last day for chamber bills

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Oklahoma's state representatives and senators are set to enter the final day to hear bills in their original chamber, resetting the stage for the rest of this year's session.

Thursday is the deadline for the House to hear House bills and the Senate to hear Senate bills. Only those proposals that have been approved by Thursday are likely to advance to the other chamber, moving one step closer to becoming law.

The bills that survive include proposals to allow commercial horse slaughter within the state, a bill to allow districts to let teachers carry guns and a largely symbolic, so-called ``nullification'' bill against the federal Affordable Care Act.

A proposal to let cities boost their non-smoking ordinances on public property was among those that didn't make the cut.
