AG Responds To California Banning State-Funded Travel To Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:

Oklahoma's Attorney General Mike Hunter has responded to California, banning state travel to the Sooner state.

California's attorney general made the announcement last week, prohibiting state-funded travel here.

He says it's because of Oklahoma's recently-signed Senate Bill 1140, which allows state funding for adoption agencies which have religious objections to gay couples adopting.

Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter issued a statement in response.

"This action substitutes rhetoric for responsible adoption policy.  Oklahoma puts the interests of children ahead of political games."
