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-

Bipartisan Study on School Safety Requested

The study requested by Rep. Jacob Rosecrants, D-Norman, and Rep. Daniel Pae, D-Lawton, would review school security practices and examine how schools protect students. “We want to take a holistic approach,” Pae said. “Our hope with this study is to collect answers, ideas, and best practices so that we can share that with our colleagues and hopefully craft smart, data-driven solutions to problems districts face when it comes to protecting students.” After a string of mass shootings, including the tragic elementary school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, the driver of the study is bipartisanship. “One of the biggest roadblocks to progress is partisan fighting,” Rosecrants said. “This is an issue that must rise above that divisiveness. Teachers across the state are teaching their students to work together. To protect those students and teachers, we must do the same.” Interim studies are approved by the Speaker of the House. Decisions on which studies are approved are expected no later than July 29. -END-
