Welcome to Our Bill Tracker
Each year, legislators author thousands of bills that are either a focus of that elected official or requests from conversations with constituents. The CAIR Oklahoma Government Affairs Department has identified over 1,000 bills that are either beneficial or potentially problematic for our community. These are laid out in the categories identified through our policy platform.
These show what legislators will be a focus for meetings, and which committee meetings to keep an eye on once sessions starts.
Bills may cross categories; this is not a perfect delineation of what bill fits where in our platform categories. Just like politics, bills and how they are written and assigned to categories and committees can be messy.
Every bill is labeled by HB or SB then given a number for reference. We have then included either the Representative or Senator who authored the bill with a brief description. The description is also not an all-encompassing portrayal of what the bill contains. Language is not final (yet), and many bills are “shell bills” or empty placeholders.
HB: House bill
SB: Senate Bill
Before most sections we have also highlighted some personal favorites or good examples. These are not subject to any official rating system, and there is a lot to sift through. In addition, our stances on certain bills might change throughout session as we learn more about a bill’s intended and unintended consequences.
Housing and public health are looking to be big topics for this legislative session. Oklahoma has a distinct lack of affordable, attainable housing. Furthermore, there have been dozens of bills filed that target a person’s right to medical privacy and treatment.
With the arrival of our new Afghan neighbors, CAIR Oklahoma has been focused on the issues of housing in Oklahoma.
Legislators have also been involved with these issues on behalf of their constituents. Some bills we are most excited about are:
- HB 1628 (Rep. Regina Goodwin) Prohibiting landlord retaliation.
- HB 1888 (Rep. John Waldron) Creating plain language forms for eviction proceedings.
- HB 1988 (Rep. Mickey Dollens) Requires landlords provide air-conditioning on all rental properties.
These are some of the many good bills filed that seek better living conditions for all Oklahomans. There are more seeking similar goals and provide protections from landlord retaliation. However, there are also some that do not have such aims.
• HB 1989 (Rep. Mickey Dollens) Requires all housing rental agreements to show all fees on the first page of the rental agreement.
• HB 2109 (Rep. Daniel Pae) Prohibits landlords from engaging in retaliation against tenants for complaints or notice for justified corrective action and enhances certain legal remedies available to tenants.
• HB 2121 (Rep. Amanda Swope) Keeps eviction orders older than three years from being visible on websites, such records to only be viewable in person at the clerk’s office.
• HB 2124 (Rep. Amanda Swope) Requires all eviction notices to include information on the date and time at which the tenancy will terminate, the legal basis for the eviction and any possible means of curing the eviction prior to termination.
• HB 2277 (Rep. John Echols) Increases the time permitted for tenants to respond to certain summons related to eviction proceedings and adjusts the fee for filing forcible entry and detainer actions.
• HB 2725 (Rep. Annie Menz) Creates income tax credit for any individual for rent paid on primary residence.
• SB 241 (Sen. Julia Kirt) Removes restrictions prohibiting municipalities from registering or requiring registration for real property.
• SB 312 (Sen. Julia Kirt) Provides a refundable income tax credit of $110 for tax year 2024, which is to be adjusted for inflation annually for individuals renting their primary residence.
• SB 319 (Sen. Julia Kirt) Modifies individual income tax brackets beginning in tax year 2024.
• SB 465 (Sen. John Montgomery) In cases of rental agreement termination due to circumstances of domestic violence, return of deposit and no additional payments required.
• SB 683 (Sen. George Young) Creating the Oklahoma Rental Assistance Grant Program.
• SB 687 (Sen. Mary Boren) Authorizing district court to refer eviction cases to mediation.
• HB 2726 (Rep. Annie Menz) Right to counsel in eviction court for indignant tenants.
• HB 2724 (Rep. Annie Menz) Stipends for landlords who accept Housing Choice Vouchers.
• HB 2040 (Rep. Monroe Nichols) Increases the affordable housing tax credit from $4 million to $10 million per year.
• HB 2278 (Rep. John Echols) Repeals ban on property registries.
- HB 2058 (Rep. Eric Roberts) Defines damage to a rental property beyond what is covered by the security deposit to be “malicious defacement”, a misdemeanor up to $1,000 in excess damage and a felony over $1,000 allows landlords to sue triple damages in addition.
- SB 380 (Sen. Micheal Bergstrom) Makes the affordable housing tax credit refundable instead of transferable.
- SB 201 (Sen. George Burns) Holding homeless encampments up to building code standards.
- HB 2361 (Rep. Brad Boles) Provides for bid standards and ownership rights over certain properties to be auctioned that are subject to liens by municipal governments.
- HB 2453 (Rep. Suzanne Schreiber) Creates Oklahoma Housing Policy Act of 2023
- HB 2870 (Rep. Kevin Wallace) Rural Housing Finance Act of 2023.
These are examples of shell bills that do not have text currently, but will hold the place for a future bill in this vein.
They are titled “Creates the Oklahoma Landlord Tenant Act of 2023” as a suggestion of what they might contain, but they will change as language is written.
- HB 1993 (Rep. Mickey Dollens)
- HB 2103, 2105, 2106 (Rep. Forrest Bennett)
- HB 2389 (Rep. Chris Kannady)
- HB 2453 (Rep. Suzanne Schreiber)
CAIR Oklahoma has become more involved with public health and equity, and this session will prove a challenge when it comes to medical care and the right to privacy. While we understand that there are diverging opinions within our community about sensitive topics, our stance is that medical decisions should be left between a patient and their provider and/or spiritual counselor, not dictated by the state legislature.

Education in Oklahoma is in a grim state. We are opposing measures that target censorship of teachers and school curriculum. While these bills might seem on their surface to be a good thing, allowing parents more input into their children’s educational decisions, the reality is that parental discomfort should not be valued above well-researched educational standards for learning. Students have a right to an accurate, well-funded education, and teachers have the right to speak on topics that are important for students to learn.
Examples of bills we oppose:
- HB 2078 (Rep. Chad Caldwell) Requires all school materials to be subject to inspection by parents, district personnel, and legislators.
There has been a big movement to increase parental involvement in the school curriculum. Not all parents are educators, and children need to learn in a manner that exemplifies the diversity of life and history. Learning isn’t always comfortable but needs to be safe. Only trained educators and school staff are qualified to make these decisions.
- HB 1031 (Rep. Jacob Rosecrants) Repeals certain restrictions on training and curriculum related to sex, race, and gender in schools.

- HB 2546 (Rep. Terry O’Donnell) Prohibits school instruction on sexual orientation or gender identity for kindergarten through grade five or in a manner that is not age appropriate.
- HB 2670 (Rep. Jay Steagall) Procedures for which a parent can submit a written complaint to a superintendent.

- SB 1017 (Sen. Shane Jett) Prohibiting schools from maintaining books on certain topics.
- SB 1031 (Sen. Shane Jett) Requiring public schools that administer certain survey to include certain affidavit.
- SB 1033 (Sen. Shane Jett) Creating the Parent, Community, and School Board Accessibility Act.
- SB 1056 (Sen. Rob Standridge) Relating to obscene material, redefining terms and requiring certain exceptions.
- SB 30 (Sen. Cody Rogers) Control names and pronouns school personnel may use for students without written parental consent.
Being able to see and access what our government is doing is key! Furthermore, we must have information on how our tax money is being used.
- HB 1919 (Rep. Andy Fugate) Requires all open records requests made of state bodies be kept in a searchable catalog with date.

Most of the bills in this category are still shell bills.

An arduous and critical issue in Oklahoma, the area of criminal justice reform is not without hope in Oklahoma. After many years of efforts, our harshly punitive criminal legal system may slowly be shifting in favor of rehabilitative and diversionary measures, protecting the rights of accused persons, and improving the conditions for those experiencing incarceration or reentry. However, we must be vigilant against policies that increase fines and fees for nonviolent offenses and that offer only harsh punishment instead of opportunities for rehabilitation. We believe that people are more than the worst moments of their lives, and we hope to see our elected leaders actively seeking ways to practice mercy and forgiveness.

The conditions for incarcerated individuals often go beyond accountability and into abuse. Even those who have done wrong to society should have the opportunity to rehabilitate and rebuild their lives once they have served their time and are ready to rejoin society. We will closely monitor the legislature for measure that will improve the quality of life for persons who have interacted with the criminal legal system.
We support efforts to make gun ownership safer and more secure in Oklahoma. Firearm ownership is a sensitive topics, and we believe that no person’s rights to safely own a firearm should be curtailed on the basis of racial or ethnic profiling or without proper due process. However, we also agree that firearm violence is a scourge upon our society’s most vulnerable people, and we hope to see policies that will encourage responsible and safe firearm practices.
