The article reports that shaken after Tulsa County, Oklahoma, voters rejected two general obligation bond questions last week. The city of Tulsa has delayed its own $250 million bond referendum from March 1 to sometime in April. An action item to set the election for March 1 was pulled from Thursday night's City Council agenda, two days after voters in the county gave thumbs down to a $79.1 million bond package for the Tulsa City-County Library System and rejected a $15.25 million bond proposal by the Jenks School District.
