OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Most members of the Oklahoma House and Senate are being sworn in at the state Capitol.

Oklahoma Supreme Court Chief Justice Steven Taylor administered the oath of office at 11 a.m. Wednesday to most House members during a ceremony in the House chamber.

A handful of the 101 House members were unable to attend the ceremony and will be sworn in separately.

The eight newly elected and 16 re-elected members of the Senate are to be sworn in the Senate chamber later Wednesday. Only half of the 48-member Senate is up for re-election each election cycle.

Republicans extended their majorities in both chambers and now have a 36-12 advantage in the Senate and a 72-29 edge in the House.

Both GOP majorities are the largest in state history.
