Stitt initially vetoed the bill on April 26 after it was introduced in January and passed through the House of Representatives on April 3. The override passed in the Senate and House of Representatives with 37-8 and 83-7 votes, respectively.
The bill prevents the NCAA from penalizing OU or other schools in Oklahoma for partaking in certain NIL activities allowed under the bill. It was an emergency bill and will go into effect immediately.
