OK Legislature Begins 2016 Session
Tuesday, February 2, 2016 6:55 AM

The Oklahoma State Legislature gathered on Monday to begin its 2016 session. This is the 2nd Session of Oklahoma’s 55th Legislature, which kicked off with a joint session to receive the governor’s "State of the State" Address.

Among other things, Gov. Mary Fallin outlined her proposals for dealing with a projected budget shortfall of nearly $1 billion.

As legislators convene, nearly 3,500 bills are available for consideration.

The first day of session is normally ceremonial with the real work starting Tuesday. The Oklahoma legislature is constitutionally required to adjourn Sine Die on the last Tuesday of May.
