This week really seems like the brakes have been applied to the legislative process. Deadline week passed for hearing Senate bills last week, but more importantly deadline passed for the Senate passing bills originating in the House. Unfortunately, my House Bill 1681, which would have provided some relief for park entry fees, failed to make it to the floor. After two years of working this bill my only option is to start the process over next session. House Bill 2363 also failed to make the cut. This bill would have added all meats to the Oklahoma Certified category, not just beef. I will start over on this as well.
