Common Core standards have been repealed in Oklahoma thanks to a bill signed by Gov. Mary Fallin, according to a report from CBS News.

Fallin said the federal governments’s attempt to influence state education policy was reason enough to abolish the math and English guidelines that were scheduled to take effect within the upcoming school year, according to CBS News.

The bill passed overwhelmingly in the Oklahoma House and Senate on the final day of the 2014 legislature, CBS News reported.

It requires the state to return to old standards in place before 2010 and directs that new ones be developed by the year 2016, according to CBS News.
