OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahomans will be paying more for in fees at the courthouse, and lawbreakers will get squeezed for more court costs, under some of the dozens of new laws that take effect this week. Some new education-related laws and bills implementing the new state-appropriated budget also are among the 60 bills passed by the Legislature that take effect on Friday. One bill expected to generate more than $11.2 million annually for Oklahoma’s district courts increases several fees.
