MEDFORD, Okla. (AP) - The U.S. Geological Survey says an earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 4.3 struck northern Oklahoma.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A lawsuit challenging a new state law that sets Oklahoma's tax on oil and natural gas production is headed to the Oklahoma Supreme Court. A Supreme Court referee is scheduled to hear oral presentations today in the lawsuit filed by attorney Jerry Fent. The suit alleges the law is unconstitutional because it was approved in the finals days of the 2014 Oklahoma Legislature.

ALTUS, Okla. (AP) - A groundbreaking is planned next month at Altus Air Force Base for the incoming KC-46A Pegasus aerial tanker aircraft. U.S. Air Force General Robin Rand and others are expected to attend the August 7th ceremony. Officials say the aircraft is intended to replace an aging fleet of tankers that have been the primary refueling aircraft for more than 50 years.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - FBI employees have told a federal judge that they thoroughly searched agency archives and found no evidence that more videos of the Oklahoma City bombing exist. A judge in Utah heard the testimony yesterday in the first day of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by attorney Jesse Trentadue. He says the FBI won't release videos that show a second person was with Timothy McVeigh when he parked a truck outside the Oklahoma City federal building and detonated a bomb that killed 168 people.
