Oklahoma Legislative Updates

 

Clay Taylor, The Taylor Group is OPA's contract lobbyist.  Along with our Executive Director, Danna Fowble who is also a registered lobbyist, work on behalf of OPA membership to protect the practice of psychology. 

 

The Legislative Affairs Committee meets once a month prior to the OPA Board meetings.  As part of those ongoing meetings, we have identified several key bills that we will monitor throughout session.  There are still a few occupational licensing bills, one managed care bill and a few bills that OSBEP will be watching.   To help with our Psychologists of the Day program this year, the Legislative Affairs Committee developed the following handout.  Feel free to use it as you wish.

The Oklahoma Psychological Association’s mission is to promote human welfare
in Oklahoma by advancing psychology as a science and profession.
