First law signed by Oklahoma governor allows virtual meeting
February 11, 2021
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The first bill signed into law by Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt during the current legislative session allows public bodies to continue meeting virtually as a coronavirus safety precaution.
The law signed Wednesday allows public bodies to meet virtually through February 2022 or until the expiration of the governor's executive emergency order on COVID-19, whichever comes first.
"We've all heard from constituents, state agencies, local school boards and other public bodies requesting this, and I'm pleased we were able to deliver so quickly," Stitt said in a statement.
