Kasey Alert System Takes Effect

The Kasey Alert system will take effect today, Nov. 1, 2023. House Bill 1077, authored by Rep. Ken Luttrell, R-Ponca City, establishes the Kasey Alert system and is named for Kasey Russell, a 29-year-old Cherokee Nation Citizen who went missing in 2016. "First, I would like to thank the grassroots efforts of the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women organization, tribal programs, loved ones and their families who raised awareness, advocated for change, and educated the public," Luttrell said. "This achievement results from their commitment to aiding victims of violence and the missing." HB1077 requires the Department of Public Safety to develop and implement a statewide Kasey Alert system for adults who are critically missing. A critical missing adult is a person between the ages of 18 and 59 whose whereabouts are unknown and who is believed to be abducted. Luttrell said this legislation represents a collaborative effort to address the critical need for improved coordination and rapid response when individuals go missing. Sen. Cody Rogers, R-Tulsa, served as the Senate author for the bill. "While I hope it is rare we have to use this alert system, I am pleased that we will have a faster notification and response when adults in our state are missing," Rogers said. "Agency cooperation and more efficient investigations were another goal of ours as we worked on this legislation, and it going into effect will help more Oklahoma families find answers and get justice." The public alert will include facts about the person and the situation around the disappearance and include information on how to contact tribal authorities in cases involving Native Americans. "I'm humbled to have contributed to this historic law," Luttrell said. "I want to thank Senator Cody Rogers, along with Representatives Daniel Pae and Mickey Dollens, for their help in making it happen."

Luttrell Elected to Chair National Energy Board

OKLAHOMA CITY – Rep. Ken Luttrell, R-Ponca City, recently was elected to serve as vice chairman of the Center for Legislative Energy and Environmental Research (CLEER). The election came at the Energy Council's annual Global Energy and Environmental Issues Conference held in Little Rock, AR. “It’s an exciting time to be a part of CLEER," Luttrell said. "There are a growing number of states and provinces participating in The Energy Council, and the CLEER Board provides critical input to the Council’s legislators. I am especially excited to serve with longtime friend and CLEER Chairman, Rep Francis Thompson, Louisiana’s longest-serving legislator, with 49 years of elected service. I look forward to continue sharing Oklahoma’s energy solutions, concerns, challenges and policies with other states and bringing their ideas and best practices home to Oklahoma.” The purpose of CLEER is to provide support for the Energy Council, bringing research and publications of energy policy issues to the Council’s attention and sponsoring forums and other opportunities for dialogue on energy and related environmental issues. CLEER’s support addresses energy and environmental questions and helps educate members of the Council with regard to state, national and global energy issues, in order that they may better serve their constituents. It consists of Legislative leaders from 15 energy-producing states and two Canadian provinces. In fiscal year 2023-24, the Energy Council will meet three times to consider local, national and international concerns. Luttrell’s energy-producing House district, which includes parts of Kay and Osage counties, has oil and natural gas exploration and development, wind and coal power generation and Oklahoma’s largest refinery, the Phillips 66 refinery in Ponca City. In the Oklahoma House of Representatives, Luttrell serves as chair of the Appropriations & Budget Subcommittee for Select Agencies and also as a member of the Energy & Natural Resources Committee.
