Major legislation[edit]

Enacted[edit]

Failed[edit]

  • Charter schools - SB 834 would have allowed school districts to easily convert schools into charter schools, a move that would exempt them from most state mandates.[7] The legislation was vetoed by the governor.
  • Embryonic stem cells - HB 1326 would have made it a crime for a scientist to perform any form of embryonic stem cell research, but was vetoed by Governor Brad Henry.[8]
  • Insurance - HB 1312 would have mandated insurance coverage for children with autism.[9] It failed to get enough votes for passage in the Oklahoma Senate.
  • Term limits - HJR 1022 would ask voters to vote on term-limits for all statewide elected offices. The legislation failed in committee.
