OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Supporters and opponents of several state questions on the ballot in Oklahoma have spent nearly $3 million to air television ads on the issues ahead of the November election.

Data released Thursday by the Center for Public Integrity show more than 3,800 ads have aired on proposals to impose a 1 percent sales tax for education, restrict oversight of farming and ranching and change the state’s alcohol laws and criminal justice system.

The data show more than $1.1 million has spent on nearly 1,200 television ads in support of State Question 792, which would allow for the sale of cold, strong beer and wine in grocery and convenience stores.

The figures cover spending through Monday and don’t include ads that aired on cable television, radio or online.
