OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Developing a long-term strategy for replacing state revenue from oil and natural gas production and examining the costs and feasibility of creating a child abuse registry in Oklahoma are among 36 legislative studies authorized by the leader of the state Senate.

The studies will be conducted before the 2017 Oklahoma Legislature convenes in February and Senate President Pro Tem Brian Bingman of Sapulpa said Wednesday that they will give senators a chance to take an in-depth look at some of the important issues facing Oklahomans. More than 70 other studies were approved last month by House Speaker Jeff Hickman of Fairview.

Other studies approved by Bingman include ways to encourage economic growth in the state, the eradication of feral hogs and public school teacher salaries and student loans.
