OKLAHOMA CITY – Speaker Charles McCall, R-Atoka, today issued a statement condemning Iran's attack on Israel: "Today, the Islamic Republic of Iran, a sponsor of terrorist organizations and supporters of Hamas, launched an attack on the Nation of Israel that included both drones and ballistic missiles. In the strongest terms, and with decisive action, the United States of America must condemn this attack and support our ally, Israel. The Oklahoma House of Representatives has passed multiple resolutions reaffirming our state's support for Israel, and today we stand strong with them as they are once again forced to defend their country against those who would see them eradicated.

Humphrey Repeats Request for AG to Investigate Probation Funds

OKLAHOMA CITY – Rep. Justin Humphrey, R-Lane, this week sent a second letter to Oklahoma Attorney General Gentner Drummond requesting an investigation into Oklahoma district attorney’s collection of probation supervision fees.  Humphrey said he’s delivered a thorough report to the AG’s office alleging the fees are being collected illegally and that supervision fees are being concealed. “This is an elaborate conspiracy that is equivalent to a money laundering scheme and a fraud on the State of Oklahoma,” Humphrey said. “This allows the DAs to ignore an appellate court order that the fees they collect must be used for the ‘actual act of supervision.’” Humphrey said legislation gave DAs authority to conduct DA supervision and to collect a $40 supervision fee, but the fee must be solely used to fund supervision, and that the DAs must do the actual supervising. He alleges the DAs are collecting fees to fund their agency without providing the required supervision of Oklahomans on probation.  The AG rebuffed Humphrey’s previous claim, so Humphrey has again sent a letter and further evidence to the AG to support his claims.  “I am certain a proper investigation of DA supervision will reveal it is inconceivable that thousands of offenders would actually be supervised by the limited number of staff assigned to DA supervision,” he said.  He also asks the DAs to define “actual supervision” and to point to a line-item budget figure that shows their actual supervision funding.  View the full letter is here: AG_Drummond_Letter_33f9c50d55.pdf (dgbf0g52sf9l0.cloudfront.net)

Sims Passes Arkansas River Levee Support through House A&B

The Oklahoma House of Representatives Appropriations & Budget Committee has approved legislation aimed at bolstering the Arkansas River Levees through the establishment of a revolving fund managed by the Army Corps of Engineers.  Senate Bill 1391, carried in the House by Rep. Lonnie Sims, R-Jenks, paves the way for the creation of the Arkansas River Levee Improvement Revolving Fund under the Oklahoma Water Resources Board. If signed into law, the $50 million fund would be used to improve the 20 miles of levees along the Arkansas River.  Levees, which are used to prevent the overflow of rivers, play an important role in maintaining safety infrastructure and protecting homes, businesses, and people.  Sims said prompt action is needed to capture the $137.4 million in federal matching funds to repair and replace the levees along the Arkansas River in Tulsa County, which have been ranked in the top 5% most at risk for failure in the United States by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. "To quote one of my favorite movies, Apollo 13, 'failure is not an option,'" Sims said. "We have to capitalize on the opportunity now to repair and replace this critical infrastructure that is well beyond its engineering design life." An estimated 10,000 people and over $2 billion in assets are protected by these levees. "To put that in perspective, 87% of Oklahoma towns are less than 5,000 in population," Sims said. "So failure could very well be the equivalent of wiping two Oklahoma towns completely off the map." SB1391 passed the House Appropriations & Budget Committee 34-0. The bill, which was authored in the Senate by Sen. Cody Rogers, R-Tulsa, is now eligible to be heard on the House floor.
