      Oklahoma Officials Schedule Swearing In of Returning, New Lawmakers

      OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The swearing in of Oklahoma lawmakers has been scheduled.

      State officials say the ceremony will be Wednesday at noon in the state Senate Chamber for all newly-elected and re-elected members.

      The swearing-in ceremony comes as state Republicans celebrate huge wins that include the increase of GOP majorities in both the state House and Senate to historic levels.

      Republicans had a net gain of 4 seats in the Senate for a 36-12 advantage. The GOP also gained three seats in the House for a new 72-29 margin - both the largest advantages ever for Republicans in the Oklahoma Legislature.
