Speaker Kris Steele’s Bills for 2012


The following 12 bills have been introduced for the 2012 OK Session by House Speaker Kris Steele.  Typically, those bills authored by the speaker are agenda driven – usually reflective of the governor’s agenda.

Of particular note is HB 3053, which sounds like a bill right out of the reinvention of government agenda. (Where government adopts a business model, with the concentration of power at the top, dependent on technology.)

The subject line reads: State government; creating the State Government Administrative Process Consolidation and Reorganization Reform Act of 2012; consolidating certain agencies into the Office of Enterprise and Management Services.

The first day of the OK session is Monday, February 6th, 2012.  Governor Mary Fallin will deliver this year’s state of the state address, which will contain hints as to the legislative agenda – i.e. what she wants the legislature to get done.

It is likely that Speaker Steele’s bills will be right in-line with the Governor’s list of “get ‘er done” items.
