OKLAHOMA CITY – Lawmaker requests for 113 interim studies have been approved in the Oklahoma House of Representatives.

Of the 136 interim study requests from House members, House Speaker Charles McCall, R-Atoka, approved 107 outright and combined 12 requests of similar topics into six approved requests. The 113 approved requests include six joint studies with the Senate.

House committees will now begin scheduling studies between Aug. 2 and Nov. 5.

To ensure committee staff has capacity to prepare for and staff interim studies, factors such as topic relevancy, whether the topic has been studied previously, and potential for associated legislation were considered when reviewing study requests.

Studies will be livestreamed on the House website. Handouts, presentations and documents utilized at hearings will be available online, as well.
