Newly updated Legislative Primer is your guide to Oklahoma’s 2019 legislative session

Who’s been nominated for Governor Stitt’s cabinet? Who chairs key legislative committees? How much is in Oklahoma’s Rainy Day Fund? As the 2019 Oklahoma Legislative session nears, our newly updated Legislative Primer will answer these questions and more.

Whether you are a veteran advocate, a complete novice to Oklahoma politics, or anyone in between, the 2019 Legislative Primer will provide you invaluable information in a concise, user-friendly format. You are welcome to download, print, and share the Legislative Primer with anyone who may need it to figure out what’s happening at the Capitol.

We also invite you to check out “What’s That?”, our online glossary of terms related to Oklahoma politics and government, and the Online Budget Guide, an in-depth resource for understanding how our state and local governments collect and spend money. 

You can see OK Policy’s top priorities for the coming legislative session here and see our legislative advocacy toolkit here. If you’re interested in joining the grassroots movement for better budget and tax policies in Oklahoma, we invite you to sign up at Together Oklahoma.

We hope these tools will help you be better informed and actively engaged during the upcoming session. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or if you would like us to come speak about policy issues, advocacy, or the legislative process.
