The article reports the filing of a protest by more than two dozen Oklahoma business leaders and others with the state Supreme Court, challenging an initiative petition putting a Taxpayers Bill of Rights to a vote of the people in November 2006. The court was asked by the protesters to rule, as invalid, the initiative petition for State Question 726. The challenge also alleges that the petition does not have enough valid signatures, is deceptive and misleading, and was not validly circulated.
