Miller Named Vice Chair of NCSL Transportation Committee

Rep. Nicole Miller, R-Edmond, has been named vice chair of the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) Transportation Committee. Miller, a Republican, was elected in 2018 and represents House District 81 in northwest Oklahoma City, West Edmond & Deer Creek. She currently serves as the chair of the House Appropriations & Budget Subcommittee on Transportation, which oversees funding for the Oklahoma Department of Transportation, the Oklahoma Department of Aeronautics and Aerospace and the Oklahoma Space Industry Development Authority. "It is both an honor and a privilege to be asked to serve as vice chair of NCSL's Transportation Committee," Miller said. "I am eager to work together with my counter parts in other States to tackle challenges and champion innovative solutions." The NCSL Transportation Committee develops policy on state-federal issues related to aviation, transit, infrastructure and other similar topics to guide NCSL's advocacy efforts in Washington, D.C. While most of the committee's work is done virtually, the committee will meet once in-person during the Legislative Summit. Miller will serve a two year term as vice chair of the committee, during which time NCSL will celebrate its 50th anniversary. NCSL is a bipartisan organization that serves the legislators and staffs of the states, commonwealths and territories. It provides research, technical assistance and opportunities for policymakers to exchange ideas on the most pressing state issues.

Miller Passes Voluntary Autism Designator for Licenses, State IDs

Rep. Nicole Miller, R-Edmond, has secured passage of legislation providing an optional indicator designating an autism diagnosis on driver's licenses and state IDs. House Bill 3671 would create an optional identifying mark for driver's licenses and state IDs to indicate that the person has autism. Miller said the end goal was to help law enforcement be aware of why a person may be displaying certain behaviors and communicating differently, but she stressed that the designator was entirely optional. "House Bill 3671 aims to provide individuals with autism and their families a choice to add an optional designation to their driver's licenses," Miller said. "By signaling to law enforcement about someone's unique needs, we can foster understanding and ensure safety for everyone." In October, Miller organized an interim study on the topic to hear directly from advocates, law enforcement and first responders before deciding to file the bill. Emily Scott, Executive Director for the Autism Foundation of Oklahoma, applauded the bill's passage. "Tuesday was an exciting day for so many autistic self-advocates and families who have voiced their desire for a program like this in Oklahoma for many years," Scott said. "People with autism are often susceptible to being misjudged because this disorder is invisible. This bill aims to prevent miscommunication and help officers feel better equipped to engage with autistic Oklahomans, making for more effective interactions for both parties. As a professional serving this population and the parent of an autistic son, I am deeply grateful to Rep. Miller for authoring HB3671 and to all members of the House for their support in passing this bill on the House floor. This is a significant step forward in our collective efforts to improve the lives of our fellow Oklahomans with autism." Data from the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that one in 36 children and one in 46 adults in the U.S. have autism. HB3671 passed the House 91-2 and now moves to the Senate for consideration, where its Senate author is Sen. Bill Coleman, R-Ponca City.

Miller Passes Alzheimer's Education Bill Through Committee

Rep. Nicole Miller, R-Edmond, passed legislation ensuring the support of adults with cognitive impairments in Oklahoma through the House Judiciary – Civil Committee on Thursday.  House Bill 3667 requires that individuals applying for guardianship of an adult with a cognitive impairment complete specified training before being appointed as a guardian. Particularly, the training for Alzheimer's must encompass understanding the disease, communication techniques, and available resources.  "There are immense challenges faced by Alzheimer's patients and their caregivers. House Bill 3667 is a proactive effort to equip guardians with the necessary knowledge and resources to effectively care for adults with Alzheimer's or other dementias," Miller said. "By ensuring guardians are well informed about the disease and the support available to them, we can enhance the quality of care provided to these vulnerable individuals. Additionally, the disease-specific training helps to better prepare caregivers and reduces caregiver stress."  More than 70,000 Oklahomans live with Alzheimer's disease, and there are over 135,000 loved ones currently serving as caregivers.  HB3667 passed the committee unanimously on Thursday.
