to avoid a political battle, Oklahoma City attorney David Slane
contended this week that his research into the constitutionality of the
2009 MAPS 3 measure is aimed at protecting the public. Recently, Slane
and his legal team questioned whether the ballot language violated the
state’s single-subject rule, which prohibits unrelated issues from being
placed on a single ballot question. The MAPS 3 ballot centered on a
sales tax extension that would finance eight separate projects.
