State Senator, Rob Standridge of Norman, filed a bill that would require homeless camps to have permits.

The bill would also require municipalities to impose sanitation standards on those camps.

Cities would have 30 days to inspect camps in their jurisdiction.

If the camps don’t comply with building codes after 30 days, the city would be required to get rid of the camps.
