Wednesday the court will make a decision on the language and decide the deadline for signatures.
If the court decides to alter the ballot title and make a new 90-day period for signature-gathering, the signatures already obtained would likely be thrown out.
Dorman said that if the shelter effort fails, he plans to introduce a House resolution in the 2014 session that would put a state question on a ballot.
“Let me just say this, I would not want to be a legislator going into an election year who voted to not put storm shelters in schools,” Dorman said.
Gov. Mary Fallin has neither opposed or supported the proposed ballot measure but feels generally the school shelter issue is something best decided at the local rather than the state level, a spokesman said.
