Wilson files resolution affirming support for constitutional definition
of the flash test for kerosene
Wilson today said he has filed Senate Resolution 65, affirming
support for the constitutional definition of the flash test for
kerosene, as a result of the precedent set by yesterday’s
passage of Senate Resolution 62. The resolution reaffirmed support
of traditional marriage.
“According to its author, Sen. Clark Jolley, Senate Resolution
62 merely says “we have not changed our minds” about
language in the Oklahoma Constitution,” said Wilson, D-Tahlequah.
“In other words, we REALLY mean it.”
Jolley said the measure was needed in light of remarks at the
national level by President Barack Obama.
“Considering the potential for misunderstanding other parts
of our constitution, Senate Resolution 65 assumes that President
Obama doesn’t understand the flash test or specific gravity
test of kerosene that we define in the Oklahoma Constitution,”
Wilson said. “This measure is offered to illuminate Oklahoma
concerns in case the President iterates a policy message regarding
kerosene. After all, we REALLY mean it.”
