OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Hundreds of new laws usually take effect every year in Oklahoma, but there will be only around 60 this year because legislators couldn’t meet as often due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Oklahoman reports that the new laws will become operative on November 1st.

One law that updates court proceedings was brought on by the pandemic. It allows for video conferencing in district courts in every stage of civil and criminal proceedings.

Another law clamps down on people who steal parcels from outside people’s homes, an act that has become prevalent with an increase in online shopping.
