OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma's three-day early voting period will begin at county election board offices across the state.
Early voting will be held from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and Monday and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday.
Registered voters can cast their in-person absentee ballots at the county election boards in the county where they're registered.
Turnout for this year's primary election is expected to be light, with only one statewide race on the ballot — two Republicans who are running for a six-year term on the Oklahoma Corporation Commission.
DALLAS (AP) — American Airlines says a federal bankruptcy judge has delayed a ruling scheduled for Friday on whether it can break its contracts with unions and impose cost-cutting steps including layoffs.
The judge set a new deadline of June 29.
The delay gives the company and unions more time to negotiate voluntary cost-cutting agreements that the unions have so far resisted.
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt has appealed a ruling that struck down a law requiring women seeking abortions to have an ultrasound image placed in front of them and listen to a description of the fetus before the procedure is performed.
Pruitt filed an appeal of Oklahoma County District Judge Bryan Dixon's decision with the Oklahoma Supreme Court Thursday.
Dixon ruled the law is unconstitutional because it addresses only patients, physicians and sonographers who deal with abortions. He rejected Pruitt's request to reconsider his decision.
DALLAS (AP) — The pilots' union at American Airlines has rejected the company's latest contract offer. The move could clear the way for a judge to decide whether American can impose its own cost-cutting terms, including layoffs.
The union board voted 11-5 on Wednesday to reject the company's offer.
A federal bankruptcy judge is scheduled to rule tomorrow on whether American can break its current contracts with pilots and other union workers. The pilots' union wants a delay in that ruling.
American and parent AMR Corp. filed for bankruptcy protection in November.
