House Democrats Call on Speaker of the House to Form Special Bipartisan Committee to Investigate State Superintendent

OKLAHOMA CITY – Today, House Democrats called on the Speaker of the House to form a special bipartisan committee to investigate possible impeachment charges for State Superintendent of Public Instruction Ryan Walters amid recent bomb threats at Tulsa area elementary schools believed to be linked to Walters' rhetoric about Tulsa Public Schools. “Oklahomans deserve a public school system where parents, students and teachers feel safe to go to school and the needs of our students are prioritized over dangerous political rhetoric,” said House Democratic Caucus Chair Trish Ranson, D-Stillwater. House Democratic Leader Cyndi Munson, D-Oklahoma City said the special bipartisan committee would investigate the current state superintendent to determine if his actions rise to the level of impeachment. “Allocating funds for public education should be free of corruption or political gain. There is already evidence of Walters’ corruption through misspent federal dollars along with discrepancies in his campaign finances. Paired with his toxic rhetoric that is impacting the safety of our schools, we believe it is more than enough to, at the very least, investigate him,” Leader Munson said. Rep. Provenzano mentioned that the rhetoric from the state superintendent has been harmful and potentially compromised the safety of school children. She also believes he is willfully neglecting his duty of office. “The rhetoric from the state superintendent has, up until now, been designed to distract and ?sow chaos. But now, elementary schools in the Tulsa area have received bomb threats as a ?result of disinformation shared by him. Our children deserve to be safe. The willful neglect of ?that duty, even in the highest offices in our state, cannot and will not be ?overlooked. Enough is enough,” Rep. Provenzano added. Leader Munson said, "We share in the growing frustration of Oklahomans across our state who want action to address their deep concerns for the future of public education. It is now time for action." -END-

Measure Aimed at Cutting Red Tape for Small Business Strengthens Child Care Access For Oklahoma Families Signed into Law

OKLAHOMA CITY – A bill by freshman Tulsa State Representative Suzanne Schreiber, aimed at cutting red tape for family home childcare and thereby easing the burden Oklahoma families face accessing child care in order to stay in the workforce. The measure was signed by Governor Kevin Stitt on Tuesday and is set to become law in November.  House Bill 2452, aims to streamline regulations pertaining to the licensing of family home child care facilities across the state. Doing so, Representative Schreiber said, ensures these small businesses can operate efficiently and safely providing families needed, reliable and consistent childcare access which strengthens our workforce and helps our economy grow and thrive. “Addressing these issues will ensure the growth and sustainability of this important sector of Oklahoma’s economy while at the same time send a message to Oklahoma families that we are working for common sense solutions to the real problems they face staying in the workforce,” Rep. Schreiber said. “Often the biggest barrier for Oklahomans to stay in the workforce is a lack of consistent and affordable childcare, so that’s what we are attempting to do.” Schreiber lauded the bi-partisan support and excitement generated for the measure. She said its passage through the legislature and support of the governor and Oklahoma’s business community is a testament to the importance of focusing on solving real problems facing Oklahomans.  “I came to this capitol building looking to be a problem solver for the issues that Oklahomans care about the most. Removing barriers for not only Oklahoma businesses, but also for the Oklahoma families who rely on consistent and quality child care, is a common sense solution that I’m proud to have shepherded through the legislature in my first legislative session,” Rep. Schreiber said. -END-

Bill Aimed at Getting to the Root of Catalytic Converter Theft Set to Become Law in November

Bill Author Says the Measure is a “Common Sense” Solution to a Growing Crime Costing Oklahoma Families Thousands of Dollars and Creating Public Safety Risks OKLAHOMA CITY –A bill authored by Tulsa freshman State Representative Suzanne Schreiber aimed at empowering law enforcement to enact forfeiture measures associated with the theft of catalytic converters and copper will become law in November after clearing all legislative hurdles. Schreiber said she was informed about the issue by her predecessor, former state representative Carol Bush, who had worked to combat catalytic converter theft during her time in office. "I heard loud and clear the theft of copper and the precious metals found in catalytic converters is an ongoing issue and law enforcement needed more supports to get to the root of the crime,” Rep. Schreiber said, “So House Bill 1328 was the next step in helping law enforcement put an end to these crimes.” Under the new law, any equipment used to commit catalytic converter and copper theft are subject to forfeiture, as well as any money acquired as a result of the theft. The law also allows forfeiture where there is a violation of the Oklahoma Scrap Metal Dealers Act. “Authorizing forfeiture allows us to get at the root of the crime and stop the business of catalytic converter theft,” she said. “ Thousands of catalytic converters are stolen from Oklahomans every year costing families an average of more than $1000. They are stolen from neighborhoods, from our church parking lots, at hotels, anywhere there is a vehicle and that creates major safety risks for the public.”  Cheryl Compton with the City of Tulsa Police Department lauded the bill as an important win for law enforcement throughout the state. “The passage of this bill set to become law in November will support the hard work of law enforcement to clamp down on catalytic converter and copper theft and protect the public not only right here in Tulsa but in communities across Oklahoma.”  -END-
