Stay Informed: A message from the Oklahoma Policy Institute: 

 

A new resource is now available (check it out here) from okpolicy.org designed to help you keep an eye on what's happening with specific bills in the Legislature. The Oklahoma Legislation Tracker identifies key pieces of legislation in several categories.

With each bill, we have provided a description of the proposed law and why it matters. You'll also find the latest actions, co-sponsors, and links to additional resources and news updates. We will add bills to the tracker as the session continues, as well as continue to update news and resources about important bills.

The bill tracker is powered by software originally developed by MinnPost, a non-profit online newspaper in Minnesota. We customized it for OK Policy using the open source code available here. The bill information comes from the Oklahoma Legislature via the Open States API by the Sunlight Foundation. It uses icons from The Noun Project.

This tool joins a growing number of resources on our site that are freely available to anyone wanting to know what's happening in Oklahoma state government. To understand Oklahoma's legislative process, check out our 2014 Legislative Primer. To find numerous statistics about Oklahoma on the state and county level, visit our interactive data app and the CountyStats 2013 fact sheets. To get  Oklahoma news updates, sign up for daily In The Know emails or subscribe to the podcast on iTunes.


And of course, for regular in-depth analysis of the issues and trends that effect Oklahomans, keep reading the OK Policy Blog and our other publications.
