OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Videos shot from the dashboards of Oklahoma Highway Patrol cruisers or cameras worn by troopers would be subject to the state's Open Records Act under a bill that is heading to the governor's desk.

The House voted 76-6 on Tuesday to accept Senate amendments to the bill by Tulsa Republican Rep. Ken Walker and sent it to the governor to sign or veto.

The bill eliminates a current exemption to the state's Open Records Act that allows the Oklahoma Highway Patrol to keep its recordings secret.

The measure also includes exceptions to allow law enforcement to keep from public view portions of recordings that showed nudity, minors, fatalities, or officer conduct that is subject of a current investigation, until such an investigation is completed.
