Senator Coffee: Lawsuit Reform Bill Gains Momentum with NRA’s Endorsement

A comprehensive lawsuit reform bill is gaining momentum with a key endorsement by the National Rifle Association, the Senate’s co-president pro tempore said Tuesday.

“The NRA’s endorsement of SB 507’s liability protection for firearms and ammunition manufacturers has added to the momentum for meaningful lawsuit reform this year,” stated Senate Co-President Pro Tem Glenn Coffee, R-Oklahoma City. “The NRA’s support should ensure additional votes for SB 507 from rural Democrats who support Second Amendment rights.”

Senate Bill 507, by Senators Cliff Branan, R-Oklahoma City, and James A. Williamson, R-Tulsa, is being amended by the House of Representatives this week to include several lawsuit reform provisions that have been blocked for several years by the Democrat leadership of the Oklahoma Senate.

This year, the Senate is tied with 24 Democrats and 24 Republicans. Coffee believes SB 507 will receive the 25 votes in the Senate needed to accept the House’s amendments and send the bill to Gov. Brad Henry.

Coffee expects a vote in the Senate on SB 507 could come early next week.
