State Solon Seeks to Subject Okla. Legislature to Transparency Laws

English: The Santa Fe Depot in Shawnee, Oklahoma.Image via WikipediaSen. David Holt (R.-Okla. City) has introduced S.B. 1243 and S.B. 1244 to make the Sooner State Legislature subject to the state's Open Meetings Law [Title 25 Okla. Stat. secs. 301-314] and Open Records Act [Title 51 Okla. Stat. secs. 24A.1-24A.24] respectively, The Shawnee (Okla.) News-Star reports.

Presently, only internal rules govern the Legislature's transparency, according to the News-Star story.

"TUOL" offers a shout-out to Sen. Holt, and should his measures become law, will be the first to say: "You're doin' fine, Oklahoma! Oklahoma, O.K."
