OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin has signed nine bills into law and vetoed one that would allow bail bondsmen to do business in all of the state's counties.

Current law limits bail bondsmen to writing only a few bonds for people outside their county. Fallin said Monday that the state Supreme Court is looking into that rule, so now isn't the time to sign a law affecting it.

Bill signed into law by Fallin include one allowing home-based bakeries that do less than $20,000 of business a year to operate without State Department of Health regulation if they follow certain rules.

Another bill allows children 13 years or older who have a disability to give hearsay evidence on physical or sexual abuse in court.
