2015 Session Overview

The 2015 Oklahoma Legislature convened on January 6, 2015, for the purpose of performing its duties as required in Section 5 of Article VI of the Oklahoma Constitution and organizing pursuant to the provisions of Article V of the Oklahoma Constitution.  The Legislature reconvened on Monday, February 2, 2015, and adjourned sine die on May 22, 2015, a week earlier than required in the Oklahoma Constitution. 

The Senate welcomed ten new members:  Senators Stephanie Bice, Kay Floyd, Jack Fry, Darcy Jech, Anastasia Pittman, Marty Quinn, Joseph Silk, Jason Smalley, Roger Thompson and Ervin Yen.  Senator Kevin Matthews was sworn in mid-session after he was elected in a special election following the resignation of Senator Jabar Shumate.

Senator Brian Bingman was re-elected as President Pro Tempore, and Senator Mike Schulz was re-elected as Majority Floor Leader.  Other officers of the Senate for the 2015 session included Senators Eddie Fields, Greg Treat and Rick Brinkley, Assistant Floor Leaders; Senators Nathan Dahm, Kim David, Frank Simpson and Rob Standridge, Majority Whips; Senator Bryce Marlatt, Majority Caucus Chair; Senator A.J. Griffin, Majority Caucus Vice Chair; and Senator Randy Bass, Minority Leader. 

The Legislature considered 2,176 bills and joint resolutions, of which 214 Senate measures and 184 House measures became law.  Governor Mary Fallin vetoed 17 measures and one of those vetoes was overridden by the Legislature.  Another two measures referred state questions to the voters for action at the November 2016 election.  Since most measures not acted on in the first session of a legislature carry over to the second session, the 2016 session will start with 1,724 measures carried over from the 2015 session.

With respect to specific issues, general appropriations for state government for fiscal year 2016 were included in HB 2242.  Despite facing a shortfall in funds available for appropriation from the General Revenue Fund of over $600 million, as compared to fiscal year 2015, the Legislature enacted a balanced budget that preserves education funding, reforms the practice of earmarking revenues, and provides for regular, independent evaluations of tax expenditures.  The Legislature was also able to enact legislation to provide a mechanism for completion of the Native American Cultural Center and Museum project and provide for construction of a self-sustaining Oklahoma Museum of Popular Culture in the Tulsa area.
