Tuesday morning, the City Council struck the proposal from its agenda. Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett says they will send it back to staff for further investigation, but he doesn't think it will ever come back up for discussion before the council.

Mayor Cornett says he feels this is an issue the state legislature should take up, not the City Council.
