Jari Askins Giving Advocacy Tips at OK Women's Coalition Event

Jari Askins shared tips on talking to our State Legislators before we headed over to the State Capitol to visit with our elected officials. We all had "Talking Points" and material to leave with our Senator and Representative encouraging them to vote YES on House Bill 2131. Introduced by House Speaker Kris Steele, the bill will:
  • Expand eligibility for community sentencing programs and mandatory supervision
  • Establish qualification requirements for Parole Board members
  • Limit the Governor's role in the parole process for nonviolent offenders
  • Expand eligibility for Oklahoma's existing Global Positioning System (GPS) monitoring program
  • Change deault sentencing to run concurrent instead of consecutive.

HB2131 has cleared the House ans is now in the Senate. Please take a minute to send your State Senator an email encouraging him or her to vote YES on HB2131.
