Oklahoma legislators are filing bills for consideration from several directions. There is no indication which of these will be seriously consider, among the over 230 bills filed so far.
The proposed legislation ranges from a prohibition for agency heads leaving office from hiring new employees, to a screening of emergency patients waiting to be transported by EMS teams to determine if they are not stable enough to be transported.
Another draft bill would allow victims of domestic violence to bring forth evidence from other relevant cases to a proposal to eliminate four government agencies.
One proposed law would prevent a family member or caretaker convicted of neglect, abuse, exploitation or other crimes against an “elderly” or disabled person from inheriting from the victim or receiving any portion of their estate. Another draft law would allow teachers to exempt from taxes 25% of their income.
Other bills include a prohibition against lasers if they are pointed at airplanes, a proposal to eliminate the state senate to create a unicameral legislature, a ban on texting while driving, allowing multi-religious symbols in schools for winter celebrations, and allowing legislators to carry firearms after a CLEET course.
