Creation and History

Before statehood in 1907, modern day Oklahoma was composed of Oklahoma and Indian Territories. While Indian Territory remained under the semi-independence of the Indian nations, Oklahoma Territory was organized territory under the supervision of the United States Congress. Within the Territory, a tripartite government existed, including a Territorial Assembly, a Territorial Supreme Court, and a Territorial Governor. 1907 (MCMVII) was a common year starting on Tuesday (see link for calendar) of the Gregorian calendar (or a common year starting on Wednesday of the 13-day-slower Julian calendar). ...

The executive branch of the territory’s government was headed by the Governor of Oklahoma Territory. The governor was appointed by the President of the United States to serve a four year term. Despite a set term, the governor served at the pleasure of the President. The President could remove the governor from office at any moment.

The Governor was the head of the Government of the Territory. He had the power to veto legislation proposed by the Territorial Legislature and the power to appoint member to his cabinet, who in turn had to be ratified by the Legislature. The Governor had the power to appoint Justices to the Territory’s Supreme Court.

After the Oklahoma Constitution was written and accepted in 1907, Oklahoma and Indian Territories was joined as the State of Oklahoma. The office of Territorial Governor was replaced by the Governor of Oklahoma. The new office possessed many of the Territorial Governor’s powers and similar responsibilities. However, the Governor was designed with many restrictions, limits, and Legislative and Judicial oversight. This was done under the “weak governor system” to not allow the abuse of power that had occurred under the Territorial government.

After the first governor Charles N. Haskell left office in 1911, the executive branch saw a vast reduction in its powers. Governor Haskell, consider the father of the Oklahoma Constitution, knew the office inside and out. This allowed him to amass a great deal of executive power and influence over every aspect of state government. However, in the twenty years after Haskell, the Legislature drained the governor of his powers and severely weakened the office. It was not until William H. Murray, another of the Constitution’s authors, in 1935 did the Governorship get back its powers.

As Oklahoma grew and the state government expanded, the Governor became gradually more powerful. As more agencies were introduced, the Governor’s appointment power extended to them all, granting him greater indirect influence over the government. Also, initially the Governor was not eligible to immediately succeed himself after being elected. It was not until 1975 did Oklahomans amend the Constitution to allow the Governor to serve two consecutive terms. 1975 (MCMLXXV) was a common year starting on Wednesday. ...


In 1986, the Governorship saw its greatest gain in power since the time of Haskell. With the institution of the Executive Branch Reform Act, the Governor was given greater administrative power over all of Oklahoma’s agencies through the Oklahoma State Cabinet. This allowed the Governor’s executive orders to be take effect faster and carry greater force throughout the state. 1986 (MCMLXXXVI) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Relationship with the Lieutenant Governor

Mary Fallin, the current Lieutenant Governor of Oklahoma

The Lieutenant Governor of Oklahoma is elected at the same election as the Governor, but not jointly as the running mate of the gubernatorial candidate. Oklahoma has had a Governor and a Lieutenant governor of different parties for the last four years as Governor Brad Henry is a Democrat and Lieutenant Governor Mary Fallin is a Republican. This event has become more frequent in the last four decades since Democratic Lieutenant Governor Leo Winters was elected to serve under Republican Governor Henry Bellmon in 1963. Since then this has happened three more times; in 1967 with Republican Governor Dewey F. Bartlett and Democratic Liuetenant Governor George Nigh, in 1987 with Republican Governor Henry Bellmon and Democratic Lieutenant Governor Robert S. Kerr III, and in 2002 with Democratic Governor Brad Henry and Republican Lieutenant Governor Mary Fallin. Image File history File links Mary_Fallin. ... Image File history File links Mary_Fallin. ...

When a Governor and Lieutenant Governor are of the same party, the Governor often uses the Lieutenant as the head of board, ageceny, or commission. This can been seen when Governor Frank Keating appointed Mary Fallin to serve as his Secretary State Small Business Advocate within his Cabinet. However, when the Governor and Lieutenant are of different parties, the Lieutenant's role in the administration is often minimal, as is the current sitiuation with Governor Henry and Lieuteant Fallin.

This unique relationship occasionally comes into play when the Lieutenant Governor is the Acting Governor. When acting as the Governor, the Oklahoma Constitution provides all the powers of the Governor to the Lieutenant Governor. This includes the power of signing or vetoing legislation, making political appointments, calling out the Oklahoma National Guard, or grant pardons. This event may come about due to the Governor’s absences from the State or inability to discharge the powers and duties of the office. The Lieutenant Governor holds the powers of the Governor until the Governor returns to the state or the disability is removed. An acting governor is a constitutional position created in some U.S. states when the governor dies in office or resigns. ...

Like the President of the United States, the Governor plays a major role in the legislative process, even though Legislative power is vested in the Oklahoma Legislature. Every bill which that is passed by both the Oklahoma Senate and Oklahoma House of Representatives, and every resolution requiring the assent of both chambers of the legislature, must, before it becomes a law, be presented to the Governor. The Governor may choose to sign it or veto it and send it back to the legislature. The Governor’s veto can only be overridden by a two-thirds approval vote from each house.

The word veto comes from Latin and literally means I forbid. ...


The Governor’s power over appropriation bills is greater than that of normal bills. As with normal bills, it must be presented to the Governor for his approval. If he disapproves of any part of the bill, he may send that part of the bill back to the legislature. However, the part of which he approves becomes law. Thus, the Governor is granted the power of the line-item veto. Any item, or items, so disapproved by the Governor in this manner become void, unless the Legislature re-passes them by a two-thirds vote. An appropriation bill or supply bill is a legislative motion which authorizes the government to spend money. ... In government, the line-item veto is the power of an executive to nullify or cancel specific provisions of a bill, usually budget appropriations, without vetoing the entire legislative package. ...


Much of the legislation dealt with by the Legislature is drafted at the initiative of the Governor or his staff. In annual and special messages to the Legislature, the Governor may propose legislation he believes is necessary. The most important of these is the annual State of the State Address. Before a joint session of the Legislature, the Governor outlines the status of the state and his legislative proposals for the upcoming year. Also, beyond the official role as Chief Legislature, the Governor is primarily in a position to influence public opinion and thereby to influence the course of legislation in the Legislature. The State of the State Address (alternatively Condition of the State Address) is a speech customarily given once each year by the governors of many states of the United States. ...


The Governor has the power to convoke the legislature, or the Senate only, on extraordinary occasions. At extraordinary sessions, no subject shall be acted upon, except such as the Governor may recommend for consideration. When ever a vacancy occurs within the legislature, the Governor shall issue a writ of election to fill such vacancies. In case of a disagreement between the two houses of the legislature, at a regular or special session, the Governor may adjourn them to such time as he shall deem proper, not beyond the day of the next stated meeting of the legislature. He may convoke the Legislature at or adjourn it to another place, when, in his opinion, the public safety or welfare, or the safety or health of the members require it. However, such a change or adjournment shall be concurred in by a two-thirds vote of all the members of each branch of the legislature. A writ of election is a writ issued by the government ordering the holding of a special election for a governmental office. ...


Judicial Powers

The Governor also plays an active role within the judicial branch of Oklahoma government. Oklahoma has a Judicial Nominating Commission consisting of thirteen members that review all potential Justices and Judges of Oklahoma's appellate courts, such as the Oklahoma Supreme Court, and review them to determine if they qualify to hold their respective positions. Of these thirteen members, the Governor appoints six without the consent of the legislature. All of the Governor's appointments serve for a term of six years each; the terms are staggered so that approximately one-third of the appointments become vacant every two years. The Oklahoma Judicial Nominating Commission is the body which selects potential justices and judges for gubernatorial appointments for judicial positions on Oklahomas appellate courts. ... The Supreme Court of Oklahoma is one of the highest judicial body in the U.S. state of Oklahoma and leads the judicial branch of the Oklahoma state government. ...


In the event of a vacancy upon the Supreme Court or on the Court of Criminal Appeals, the Judicial Nominating Committee shall choose and submit to the Governor and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court three nominees, each of whom has previously notified the Commission in writing that he will serve as a Justice if appointed. Once three potential Justices or Judges are approved by the Judicial Nominating Committee, the Governor appoints one to serve on the Court. If the Governor fails to do appoint a nominee within sixty days, the Chief Justice of Oklahoma shall appoint one of the nominees. After the Justice's or Judge's first six years in office, they must stand for retainment by the people of Oklahoma for another six year term.


The Governor also possess the power to grant commutations, pardons and paroles for all offenses, except cases of impeachment, upon such conditions and with such restrictions and limitations as he may deem proper, subject to such regulations as may be prescribed by law. However, the Governor shall not have the power to grant paroles if a convict has been sentenced to death or sentenced to life imprisonment without parole. In Law, a commutation of sentence occurs when an executive head of government reduces a sentence for a criminal action. ... A pardon is the forgiveness of a crime and the penalty associated with it. ... Parole can have different meanings depending on the context. ...

In order to grant a pardon to an individual, he must submit the name of the individual to a Parole and Pardons Board composed of five members, three of which are appointed by the Governor at the beginning of his term in office to serve a term that coincides with his own. After reviewing the applicant for clemency, and a favorable vote from the majority, the Board may empower the Governor to make such acts of clemency as he deems necessary.


The Governor, however, shall have power to grant after conviction, reprieves, or a leave of absence not to exceed sixty days, without the action of the Board. He shall communicate to the Legislature, at each regular session, each case of reprieve, commutation, parole or pardon, granted, stating the name of the convict, the crime of which he was convicted, the date and place of conviction, and the date of commutation, pardon, parole and reprieve A pardon is the forgiveness of a crime and the penalty associated with it. ...
