DALLAS - The Oklahoma Legislature spent much of the last day of its 2008 regular session on Friday putting the final touches on a three-part bond package totaling $475 million. The Legislature was set to adjourn at 5 p.m., but earlier in the day extended the session until midnight.

The bond package was the result of at least a week of behind-the-scene negotiations between legislative leaders and Gov. Brad Henry, who was represented in the talks by Treasurer Scott Meacham.
