Oklahoma Still Doesn't Understand American Federalism and Constitution

"Bill would end recognition of Supreme Court's authority": The Daily O'Collegian, the student newspaper of Oklahoma State University, has an article that begins, "A bill introduced Monday in the Oklahoma state Senate would forbid the United States Supreme Court from reviewing Oklahoma laws."
The sponsor of the legislation, [is] Oklahoma State Senator Ralph Shortey[.]

From here.

If passed, the bill would be put to state voters, since it also amends the state constitution. It seeks to reverse 195 years of settled constitutional precedents with their origins about eighteen years after the current U.S. Constitution was adopted.
