Visibly frustrated, Rep. Scott Inman, Oklahoma City, rubs his face and eyes during limited debate before a vote in the Oklahoma House of Representatives on Thursday afternoon, May 24, 2012, where members voted 52-42 to pass a $6.8 billion general appropriation bill to finance a state budget that begins in July. The House had failed to garner enough votes to pass the bill earlier in the day. Inman is the Democratic Minority Leader in the House. He spoke in opposition to the bill before it passed.
