Sen. Lamb Wins Committee Approval for Operation Iraqi Freedom License Plates

The Senate Finance Committee has given unanimous support to legislation creating special license plates for Oklahomans who have served in Operation Iraqi Freedom. State Sen. Todd Lamb, R-Edmond, is author of Senate Bill 1138.

“Approximately 70 Oklahoma soldiers have died in Operation Iraqi Freedom. 5,500 Oklahoma Air and Army Guard have served two to three tours of duty…and approximately 21,182 active duty or reserve soldiers have served in Operation Iraqi Freedom,” Lamb said.

Lamb said the request for this legislation had actually come from a constituent who was a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

“I think it is very important for the State of Oklahoma to make a statement that we support our veterans, especially when you consider how many of our young men and women have stepped forward to defend our nation,” Lamb said. “This is just one small way that we can honor their service on our behalf, and I am grateful we had unanimous support in committee for this effort.”

SB 1138 now moves to the full Senate for further consideration.
