Senate to Debate Right to Work on March 14th

A resolution calling for a statewide vote on right to work will be taken up by the full Senate on March 14th, according to Senate President Pro Tempore Stratton Taylor.

The Senate leader has scheduled debate on SJR 1 to begin at 10:30 am on Wednesday, March 14th.

By announcing the time and date of the floor debate in advance, Senator Taylor said he hoped to allow members of the Senate and general public time to adjust their schedules accordingly.

"We have a lot of work to do on a number of different issues in the coming weeks so this should help with scheduling," said Senator Taylor.

If approved by the Legislature and Oklahoma voters, SJR 1 by Sen. Dave Herbert would add a right to work provision to the state constitution.

Earlier this month, the measure earned a do-pass recommendation from the Senate General Government Committee, which then forwarded it to the full Senate for consideration.
