(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Governor Keating today issued his official call for the special session, adding a number of topics to the scheduled issue menu.

The session is scheduled to crank up next Wednesday. It will focus on criminal justice, tobacco settlement proceeds and a half dozen other issues including car tag and workers compensation reform.

A 22-point-3 (m) million dollar tag reduction plan is scheduled to appear on a statewide referendum in August.

Lawmakers called for a vote on the issue after Keating vetoed a Democrat-backed tag reform bill for the second straight year.
