Both Houses of the Oklahoma Legislature Appoint Members to Conference Committee for Ballot Access Bill

Both houses of the Oklahoma legislature have now appointed representatives to a conference committee for HB 2134. This is the bill that lowers the number of signatures for newly-qualifying parties. The Senate version of the bill also lowers the number of signatures for independent presidential candidates and the presidential nominees of unqualified parties.

The purpose of a conference committee is to work out a common bill that both houses are likely to support. The bill has already passed both houses, but different versions passed in each house. The legislature adjourns May 30.

  1. Odd. I didn’t get an email notification for this update. Glad to see it.

    As for the Senate part of the committee, all members voted in favor of the bill. Those who were on the Rules committee voted in favor then, and all voted in favor of it on the floor.

    The same goes for the House side, which consists of the House Rules Committee.
