Eminent domain petition delivered to the Oklahoma Supreme Court

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- An initiative petition that would restrict government's ability to use eminent domain to obtain private property was delivered to the Oklahoma Supreme Court Tuesday.

A total of 163,375 signatures were verified by the Secretary of State's Office, which received nine boxes of signature pamphlets from the citizens group Oklahomans in Action on December 20th. The group needed 117,101 signatures to get the issue on a statewide ballot.

The Supreme Court will verify the the count and decide any protests or challenges that are filed before State Question 729 is forwarded to Governor Brad Henry to set a statewide election date.
