Welcome to the new! We’ve redesigned the website from the bottom up to make it more beautiful and accessible.

A growing percentage of visitors to are arriving on mobile phones or tablets, so a big priority for our redesign is to provide a much better experience across devices. The new site has a responsive layout for easy reading and navigation, whether you’re holding a phone, tablet, or a mouse. Check us out on your different devices or shrink your browser window to see the change in action.

We’ve also added some features to make it easier for anyone who wants to know the most important facts about Oklahoma policy issues. Our new issue pages now each have a selection of key charts and graphics, a link to the bills we’re watching in that area, and a new category of articles called “basics” — your first stop if you want a grounding in the most important concepts and facts related to that issue. And of course you can still browse all of our publications and blog posts on each of these topics, whether you’re interested in budget and taxes, criminal justice, education, health care, immigration, poverty and opportunity, or voting and elections.

A new section on our sidebar, “Take Note”, will feature quick links to upcoming events, job or internship opportunities, action alerts, and other important, time-sensitive updates from OK Policy. And all of the other resources we’ve created to help Oklahomans stay informed are still here: the OK Policy BlogOklahoma Billtracker, Find Your Legislators tool, Legislative Primer, Online Budget Guide, State & County Data tools, What’s That? glossary, Quotes of the Day, Numbers of the Day, and more to come!

We’d love to hear what you think about the new site — especially if you have ideas for improvements or new features we might include. We’re always looking for new ways to bring accessible information to Oklahomans and advocate for fair and responsible public policies.
