Legislature Ready to Resume in Oklahoma

By  | 

Lawmakers don't officially get back to work until next month, but they've already put bills on the table that might catch your attention.

In the Oklahoma House of Represenatives, Bill 1014 would make abortions illegal in the state if the U.S. Supreme Court overturns its rulings declaring abortions unconstitutional.

Two other high priority House bills include the creation of a low-income home energy assistance program and a teacher pay increase depending on the individual's education level.

In the Senate, Senator Jay Paul Gumm of Durant has proposed a number of bills, including one that would force state health insurance agencies to cover all OB-GYN exams.

Senate Bill 9 would create Oklahoma's own tax-free weekend, a measure that has failed in the past.

The bill filing deadline isn't until next week.
