OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The first bill signed into law by Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt during the current legislative session allows public bodies to continue meeting virtually as a coronavirus safety precaution. The law allows public bodies to meet virtually through February 2022 or until the expiration of the governor’s executive emergency order on COVID-19, whichever comes first.

Lawmakers last year allowed for virtual meetings, but those provisions expired in November. Stitt said on Wednesday while signing the bill into law that constituents and various state and local public entities requested the legislation.
