OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A bill intended to protect the personal information of children is among 17 bills signed into law by Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin.

The s0-called the library bill would allow public and school libraries to deny requests for information — such as the address of a child with a library card — if staff members are suspicious of the request. Authors of the measure say it's meant to protect children from predators.

Fallin also signed bills Friday that would allow people with military IDs to use them to vote and another that says the Corrections Department director can no longer transfer mentally ill prisoners to a state hospital.

Another bill Fallin signed says courts can order community service for someone who doesn't pay child support and is unemployed on purpose.
