Mike Reynolds, R-Oklahoma City, said his measure covers all statewide offices except those on the Corporation Commission; they are defined in a separate section of the state Constitution.
Under Reynolds’ proposal, if any major office is vacated before the end of the officeholder’s term, the position would remain unfilled until the next general election. General elections are held in even-numbered years. The governor now is allowed to appoint a successor.
All measures now advance to the House.
