SECTION I

Highlights This Week

 

General Appropriations Bill Signed by Governor: On Monday, the Governor signed HB 3050, the general appropriations bill which guarantees all state agencies a "base" budget for the coming fiscal year (FY'99). The bill includes $693.3 million for higher education, the same level that was appropriated for FY'98.

 

Conferees Named for Tulsa Bills: Twenty-two legislators, seven from the Senate and fifteen from the House have been assigned to work out the differences between three bills related to higher education in Tulsa-- SB 1426, HB 2361, and HB 2399. Though there are technically three separate conference committees, one for each bill, the same legislators have been appointed to all three committees (with exceptions noted below). The members of the conference committees include:

House Conferees:

Rep. Betty Boyd (D - Tulsa)

Rep. John Bryant (R - Tulsa)

Rep. Russ Roach (D - Tulsa)

Rep. John Sullivan (R - Tulsa)

Rep. Scott Adkins (R - Broken Arrow)

Rep. David Braddock (D - Altus)

Rep. James Hager (D - Pawhuska, HB 2361 only)

Sen. Lewis Long (D - Glenpool)

House Votes to "Sunset" Teacher Preparation Commission, Again: On Wednesday, the House of Representatives passed another amendment that would "sunset" the Oklahoma Commission for Teacher Preparation on July 1, 1999.

The amendment was attached during floor consideration of SB 1409, a bill dealing with K-12 teacher contracts. The amendment was submitted by Rep. Dale Turner (D - Holdenville).

Earlier this session, the House included similar language in a bill that did not survive in the Senate.
