The Legislature will be called back for a second special session to address the state's budget shortfall on Dec. 18, Gov. Mary Fallin announced Thursday.

The Republican governor said details are still being worked out and she has not yet filed an executive order or issued an official call. That will come later, she said.

“Discussions are continuing with legislators and Oklahomans in all types of professions from across the state on a long-term, predictable solution to fix our budget and fund core services,” Fallin said. “Budget plan estimates are being developed on various revenue proposals. Instead of waiting for final details, I wanted to give legislators enough notice as possible about when they should return to the Capitol."
