ctions should be taken seriously. Still, we hope Fent is off the mark with his latest lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of a law financing repair of the Oklahoma Capitol. Because the law financed only one building, Fent argues it is an unconstitutional “special law.” If Fent’s argument prevails, this will be the second time he has successfully challenged legislation to fund Oklahoma Capitol repairs.
