ABSTRACT
The article reports that the 12-month delay wait for an Oklahoma Supreme Court ruling of a $50 million bond issue to pay for endowed university chairs cost the state about $2.4 million in interest. The interest rate was 4.42 percent when the court was asked to validate the bonds in November 2004 but had risen to 5.13 percent when the issue sold last week.
