House bypasses governor’s veto to claim Oklahoma’s sovereignty
Although Gov. Brad Henry vetoed similar legislation 10 days earlier, House members Monday again approved a resolution claiming Oklahoma’s sovereignty. Unlike House Joint Resolution 1003, House Concurrent Resolution 1028 does not need the governor’s approval.
The House passed the measure 73-22. It now goes to the Senate.
"We’re going to get it done one way or the other,” said the resolutions’ author, Rep. Charles Key, R-Oklahoma City.
"I think our governor is out of step.”

Centurion, just asking... what would have you said if democrats would have done the same thing in 2002 because of Bush abuses of the laws and power?
Anyway, the governor should be impeached on this issue alone. The state is sovereign under the tenth amendment, this is only establishing a fact. This is not secession, the governor should have a neutral standpoint and go along with establishing that fact.
