A bill allowing pregnant women to use
handicap parking spaces in the final months of pregnancy is among
the measures signed into law by Oklahoma Gov. Brad Henry.
Henry signed 17 measures on Monday, including one permitting
pregnant women to obtain a temporary placard from a physician that
allows them to use handicap parking spaces.
Among the other bills was one that would allow an Oklahoma state
flag to be sent to the surviving spouse or parent of an Oklahoma
military member killed in the line of duty.
Other bills signed Monday would create an additional $3 vehicle
registration for motorcycles to be used for education programs and
increase the age limit for commissioned Oklahoma Highway Patrol
officers from 43 to 49.
