Oklahoma Supreme Court Throws Out T A B O R

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The Oklahoma Supreme Court Thursday threw out the proposed "taxpayer bill of rights" petition to reduce growth in government spending.

The court ruled the petition lacked sufficient valid signatures to send it to the ballot.

The proposal was aimed at limiting increases in state government spending to the growth of inflation and population.

The order indicated the justices agreed with a referee's report that tens of thousands of signatures were gathered illegally by out-of-state circulators.

State Senator Randy Brogdon said the court opinion disenfranchises 300,000 people who signed the petition. He says backers will continue to work to get it on the ballot, even if it means they must collect new signatures.
