OKLAHOMA CITY -

State Question 814 which would have adjusted how money from the 1998 tobacco settlement is distributed has failed.

Supporters say it would have helped fund Medicaid expansion that voters approved earlier this year. Meanwhile, opponents said there were no specific requirements that the money be used for expansion and could leave the state without a way to fund it.
