Legislative Saturday, January 26, 2013

All OBA members are invited to join the Legislative Monitoring Committee Saturday, Jan. 26, in Emerson Hall at the Oklahoma Bar Center to review and discuss proposed 2013 legislation. 

The meeting will begin at 10 a.m. and every effort will be made to conclude by 2 p.m. Come and stay for the entire meeting or only a portion if you are unable to attend all day. 

Lunch will be provided, and we will need an RSVP from you. Email debbieb@okbar.org with the number attending.

It would be helpful, and you are encouraged to bring your laptop or i-Pad with wi-fi capability for use in viewing the bills online.  It is important for participants to review the legislation in their area of interest prior to the meeting.  Please bring any notes that you have made and the bill numbers of your bills of interest.

To review the proposed legislation, go to www.oklegislature.gov and click on the tab titled “LEGISLATION” at the top of the home page. The search engine there provides a number of ways to search and view proposed legislation.

The participants at the meeting will determine which bills we will follow.  A list of those bills will be compiled and placed on the OBA website where the progress of the bills will be updated each week.
