OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ The speaker of Oklahoma's House of Representatives says he wants an interim study on term limits for members of the Supreme Court and appeals courts.
Republican House Speaker T.W. Shannon of Lawton announced the study on Friday. It came just three days after the state Supreme Court struck down a lawsuit reform law enacted in 2009 that was a priority for Republican legislative leaders.
Shannon says the study will evaluate the judicial process to make sure the public is being properly served and the will of the people is being correctly enforced. He says the framers of the state Constitution created a system of checks and balances and lawmakers should assure the system is not controlled by a powerful handful of activists.
The interim study will be conducted this fall.
