OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Gov. Mary Fallin has signed more than two dozen bills into law and issued her first veto of the session.

Among the bills signed she Monday were new laws regulating sex offenders in Oklahoma and a weapons measure that allows non-operational firearms, knives or bayonets on school campuses for ceremonial or educational purposes.

The bill Fallin vetoed dealt with employer notification of law enforcement officers who fail to complete their annual 25 hours of continuing education. The bill removed the notification requirement that Fallin said could result in police departments unknowingly employing an officer unlawfully.

Another bill Fallin signed would increase the penalties for people who misuse their welfare benefits, while others dealt with topics including scrap metal dealers, animal shelters and juror qualifications.
