OKLAHOMA CITY (January 14, 2010) – At the conclusion of the filing process at 5 p.m. on Jan. 14 – the last day for state representatives to file legislation – there were 1,153 bills and 31 joint resolutions filed in the Oklahoma House of Representatives for the 2010 legislative session.

This is the second year members of the Oklahoma House of Representatives were able to file bills electronically, increasing efficiency and moving the state one step closer to a “paperless” government.

Last year, the House Chief Clerk’s Office reported that 1,270 bills and 46 joint resolutions were filed in the Oklahoma House of Representatives for the 2009 legislative session.

Of last year’s measures, 901 House bills carried over and remain alive this session, as do 48 joint resolutions.
