Oklahoma Governor Calls Special Legislative Session
Oklahoma legislators will head back to the Capitol on April 6 for a special legislative session to confirm Gov. Kevin Stitt’s declaration of a statewide health emergency due to COVID-19.
Lawmakers are in the middle of the legislative session, but they cleared out of the state Capitol as the COVID-19 outbreak ramped up.
The Legislature is constitutionally required to adjourn by 5 p.m. on May 29.
Legislators have not yet set a date to return to pass a state budget and any other legislative priorities.
