OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Several House members are complaining their bills to outlaw embryonic research and to allow school employees to deliver “Merry Christmas” greetings to one another aren’t getting a hearing in the Senate.

Rep. Bobby Cleveland’s so-called “Merry Christmas” bill that specifically authorizes school district employees to use the greeting and erect nativity scenes has stalled in the Senate Education Committee.

A separate measure that prohibits research involving human embryos has not been scheduled for a hearing in the Senate Health and Human Services Committee.

A third stalled measure would direct school districts to adopt new policies for student speakers and permit students to express their religious beliefs in homework and classroom assignments without penalty.
