The bill has passed the Senate and is headed to the Governors desk to be signed. Gov. Fallin has said in the past that if an open carry bill is put on her desk she will sign it.
They didn't have a link to the bill itself, but I think it will basically strike the word "concealed" from the current language of the law in the state. So it would still require getting a permit just like CCW, but the weapon does not have to be concealed.

OKLAHOMA CITY - A bill to allow Oklahomans who receive a concealed carry permit to openly carry holstered firearms is heading to Gov. Mary Fallin.
The Senate voted 33-10 on Thursday to approve the bill over the objections of some Democrats who say it could pose problems for law enforcement officers. The bill now heads to Gov. Mary Fallin, who has indicated her support of an open carry law. If she signs it, the bill will become effective Nov. 1.
Retired Oklahoma City police officer and Oklahoma City Democrat Sen. Al McAffrey says he's concerned that people openly carrying weapons could cause confusion for officers who arrive on the scene of a crime.
A similar open-carry bill passed a House committee on Thursday.
