OK Open Records Proposal

We continue to follow a developing story out of the Oklahoma State Capitol. A proposed Bill by State Rep. Jason Murphey would require state lawmakers to comply with Oklahoma's open records and open meetings laws. The Legislature has exempted itself from both acts.

Murphey says the proposal is being reviewed by a staff attorney and should be filed in a matter of days. The deadline to file bills is Jan. 20. He said Legislators should follow the same laws as all other elected officials.

House Speaker-Elect Kris Steele said he hasn't seen the proposal but supports openness in government.

We will continue to follow this developing political story.
