OKLAHOMA HB 2715: Defeated

 
 

OKLAHOMA HB 2715:
(REPRESENTATIVE TESS TEAGUE)

WE SENT REPRESENTATIVE TEAGUE A FOUR PAGE LETTER, ON FEBRUARY 07, 2018, THAT VERY SPECIFICALLY LAID OUT OBJECTIONS WE RAISED TO MANY OF THE PRE-EXISTING SEGMENTS OF THIS RE-NUMBERED BILL. REP. TEAGUE HAD A FEW CHANGES THAT SHE WANTED BUT THEN WANTED TO RUN THE OLD LANGUAGE OF THE PREVIOUS BILL THROUGH, AS IS.
UNFORTUNATELY, THIS IS DONE MANY TIMES WITHOUT NEW AUTHORS TAKING A LOOK AT THE OLD LANGUAGE OF THE BILL THEY ARE CHANGING. THIS CURRENT AUTHOR, WANTED TO ALLOW ELECTRONICALLY FILING OF DOCUMENTS CONCERNING
PROTECTIVE ORDERS.

WE ARE OPPOSED TO ELECTRONIC FILING FOR MANY REASONS WHICH WE EXPLAINED TO REP. TEAGUE. WE SENT THOSE FOUR PAGES, LINE BY LINE, EXPLAINING WHY WE WERE REQUESTING THE CHANGES WE LISTED.

AS YOU CAN SEE, ELECTRONIC FILING SEEMS TO BE ON THE MINDS OF OUR LEGISLATORS AND ALL FOR THE WRONG REASONS.

WE SENT REP. TEAGUE AN E-MAIL, ON MARCH 20, 2018, REQUESTING A RESPONSE FROM HER CONCERNING OUR LETTER AND TO LET HER KNOW, AS WE DID IN OUR LETTER TO HER, THAT WE COULD SUPPORT HER BILL IF CERTAIN REQUIREMENTS WERE CHANGED.
WE NEVER HEARD FROM REP. TEAGUE OR HER OFFICE.
