Oklahoma Legislators introduced more than 2,000 bills last month. Now those bills make their way through (or get stopped in) the legislative process.

To advocates, that process can seem confusing or convoluted at times. Thankfully the State Chamber of Oklahoma and the Oklahoma Policy Institute created guides to help us understand the process.

See this illustration from the State Chamber of Oklahoma to learn about the steps from introduction of a bill to the Governor’s signing into law.

The Oklahoma Policy Institute creates an annual Legislative Primer that gives an overview of Legislative and Executive Leaders, the budgeting process and more.
