Update from the Capitol


 

Yesterday, the first session of the 57th Oklahoma Legislature adjourned with a lot to be desired. The Legislature left a number of criminal justice reforms on the table, coverage expansion was not addressed, and mental health did not receive adequate funding. 


Here are some highlights from the legislative session:


HB 1269 passed, making SQ 780 retroactive 


HB 1411 passed and was signed by Governor Stitt, the bill expands the Oklahoma Affordable Housing Tax Credit to include Tulsa, Oklahoma and Cleveland counties.


SB 773 passed and was signed by Governor Stitt, the bill provides educational loan repayment assistance for mental health providers that provide service in health professional shortage areas.


$10 million was allocated to ODMHSAS Smart on Crime initiative
