Reminder - Citizen Involvement Training Classes
Legislative Deadlines - Calls needed on SB 23 and SB 53
07/20/12 - On Tuesday, July 17, 2012 the OK State Chamber of Commerce held a Legislative Wrap Up meeting at NSU in Broken Arrow, OK. The Chamber's presentations were revealing - they admit they are actively recruiting and running "pro-business" candidates who will do their bidding once elected. Discussed are the Chamber's mechanisms for getting them to change their votes. Also discussed is the OK Civil Justice Council, aimed at targeting those judges who don't render "pro-business" decisions in court. For those who had any doubts about the OK Chamber's agenda - this is must hear listening.
07/06/2012 - In June Oklahoma experienced an unprecedented number of challenges to Republican incumbents. Grassroots candidates faced stiff opposition from the establishment machinery - everything from personal attacks, to outright lies - and most lost in the primary election. Pastor Paul Blair ran for Senate Dist. 41, against incumbent Sen. Clark Jolley. What happened during that campaign and Paul's plans going forward.
06/29/2012 - In June Oklahoma experienced an unprecedented number of challenges to Republican incumbents. Grassroots candidates faced stiff opposition from the establishment machinery - everything from personal attacks, to outright lies - and most lost in the primary election. One grassroots candidate, Pastor Dan Fisher, did succeed in getting elected to OK HD 60. Join as we discuss this most contentious campaign and Dan's plans for HD 60.
06/08/2012 - Water Nightmare.
OK Governor Mary Fallin has signed one of the most dangerous pieces of legislation ever. Called the Water for 2060 Act, HB 3055 states "the public policy of this state is to establish and work toward a goal of consuming no more fresh water in the year 2060 than is consumed statewide in the year 2012". Can anyone say water rationing? Hosts Amanda and Don discuss the ramifications of this dangerous legislation and recommended actions for Oklahomans.

2013 Citizen Involvement Training Classes
OK-SAFE, Inc. - A new year brings many things, including the start of another legislative session. (First day of session is Monday, February 4, 2013).
This means it is also time for OK-SAFE's annual Citizen Involvement in the Legislative Process training classes to begin.
OK-SAFE's training classes are in-depth, un-sissified working sessions - come prepared to work.
The training is presented in multiple parts, beginning with the basics, moving on to how/when to lobby, and then on to more advanced subjects such as legislation and how to read a bill with understanding. The class will also cover understanding political doublespeak, and who/what is influencing legislation in Oklahoma.
Attendees will come out of this class better informed, more confident in their ability to communicate with elected officials, better able to track and follow legislation, and, hopefully, more informed about the potential impact proposed legislation could have on this state.
The following dates, times and locations have been confirmed for three training classes.
Saturday, January 12, 2013. 9 am to 12:30 pm at Heartland HQ Building, 1008-B N. Hickory Ave., Broken Arrow, OK, 74012
Saturday, February 2, 2013. 9 am to 12:30 pm at Spirit Life Church, 5345 S. Peoria Ave., Tulsa, OK, 74105
Oklahoma City Area:
Saturday, January 26, 2013. 9 am to 12:30 pm at The Village Library, 103o7 N. Penn Ave., Oklahoma City, OK 73120

Handouts will be provided; internet is available so please bring your own notebook computers. A small donation may be asked to offset expenses.
If your group or organization would like to schedule addition training classes please contact OK-SAFE at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to see you there.
