OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin has signed seven pieces of legislation and vetoed one.

Fallin took the action on Wednesday. She has now signed into law 319 bills passed by the House and Senate during the 2014 Legislature and vetoed another 27.

One bill signed into law makes attempts to influence jurors by communications, threats or promises a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a $5,000 fine.

Another prohibits employers from requiring access to the personal online social media account of employees as well as prohibits retaliatory action against workers who not provide access to social media accounts.

The vetoed bill exempts public schools districts and other education institutions from disclosure rules for memorandums of understanding. Fallin’s veto message says that does not promote openness and transparency.
