Print Friendly

Below please find the initial list of bills OCPA Impact is watching for potential use in the legislative scorecard we will release following Oklahoma’s 2016 legislative session.

OCPA Impact’s scorecard will focus on legislation related to broad-base issues of economic freedom, free enterprise, individual opportunity, limited state government, and federalism.

We intend to notify legislators when bills are added or removed from the watch list, prior to votes on those bills. We also intend to track and score committee and floor votes on bills included in the final scorecard. [For more on OCPA Impact’s scorecard of how legislators voted in Oklahoma’s 2015 session, please click here.]
