Oklahoma Legislative Update

The Oklahoma legislature has gone into recess until they can reach a budget consensus. The JCAB Committee meeting scheduled for Wednesday afternoon where SB46X was supposed to be considered was cancelled. The JCAB Committee meeting scheduled for today was also cancelled.

SB49 has been introduced by Senator Brecheen. This bill proposes to reduce the Oklahoma Affordable Housing Act by 25% between January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2020 (see page 57).

We recommend our membership keep communicating with their Representatives and Senators on the importance of the Oklahoma Affordable Housing Act and the need for affordable housing in Oklahoma. If you need resource material, please let us know.
