OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Voters would be asked to alter the way the Oklahoma Legislature considers budget bills and other matters in legislation that has been passed by a state House committee.

The House Rules Committee Wednesday approved the measure by Rep. Randy Grau of Edmond. It now goes to the House floor for consideration.

The bill calls for a vote of the people on an amendment to the state Constitution that would require the Legislature to only consider appropriations and budget measures during legislative sessions in odd-numbered years and all other measures in even-numbered years.

Grau says the proposal would allow the Legislature to implement a comprehensive review of agency budgets and would give members more time for input, consideration and debate of the state budget.
