The North Van Buren railroad overpass currently being reconstructed will be named Veterans Memorial Bridge and will be adorned with more than 80 American flags on holidays and special occasions, thanks to a project of Enid A.M. AMBUCS. Oklahoma Transportation Commission awarded a $10.9 million contract last June to Bridges Inc., doing business as Scudder Bridge Co., of Newton, Kan., to demolish and rebuild both spans of the overpass. AMBUCS said the flag project is slated to move forward as soon as construction is complete on the bridge
Gov. Kevin Stitt is making progress on the ever-growing stack of bills on his desk, but has yet to issue his first gubernatorial veto. Stitt, who is in his first year as governor, has signed 36 bills so far this session. He also has 17 bills — 22 from the House and 14 from the Senate — on his desk awaiting action. Earlier this session, Stitt signed bills that expanded his executive power over hiring the heads of five major state agencies. He also signed the permitless carry bill that allows people to openly carry firearms without a background check or training.
