Oklahomans For Modern Laws

Oklahoma City (AP) _ A group that wants to legalize the sale of wine and full-strength beer at grocery stores has missed a chance to circulate an initiative petition at the Oklahoma State Fair in Oklahoma City.

A consultant for the group, Larry Wood, says Oklahomans for Modern Laws still plans to file the petition with the Secretary of State, however, Wood says the group will have a booth at the Tulsa State Fair, which begins Sept. 27 and runs through Oct. 7.

Earlier, the organization announced it would circulate the petition at the Oklahoma City Fair, which ended a 10-day run on Sunday.  Wood said the group had not raised enough money by the time the Oklahoma City Fair began last week.  He says fundraising is looking up with the endorsement of the plan by newspapers around the state.
