Oklahoma Women's Coalition is reading bills, planning Day at the Capitol March 2

Hang on to your hat! The second session of the 52nd Oklahoma Legislature gets under way Monday, February 1st. The deadline for introducing bills was yesterday with over 2,200 bills introduced. In the Senate, 1082 new bills and 28 new resolutions were filed plus there were 860 Senate bills and 38 Senate resolutions that carried over from last year. In the House of Representatives, 1,153 bills and 31 resolutions were introduced and 901 House bills plus 48 House resolutions carried over from last year. Now the Oklahoma Women's Coalition is busy reading these bills and resolution to identify those that impact women and girls. We'll be tracking bills on aging, education, girls, health, incarceration, violence against women, and work & family.  We'll host a Day at the Capitol on March 2nd to visit legislators and let them know we are available as a resource on women's issues. Visit our website at http:/ learn more and join online. Now the question is -- (how) will we use social media to keep our members and others informed during the Legislative Session? Got a thought? suggestion? Tweet me @jeanwarner or leave a note on Facebook /jeanwarner.
