The Senate Sunset Review Committee approved the re-creation of eight entities pursuant to the provisions of the Oklahoma Sunset Law which requires reviews of state agencies, boards and commissions for the purpose of terminating entities that are no longer performing their stated purposes. The entities which were recreated for an additional six years were: the State Board Registration for Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors, the Oklahoma Accountancy Board, the Board of Governors of the Licensed Architects and Landscape Architects of Oklahoma, the Oklahoma State Board of Embalmers and Funeral Directors, the Long-Term Care Facility Advisory Board, the Eldercare Program Advisory Committee, the Commission on Marginally Producing Oil and Gas Wells and the Minority Teacher Recruitment Advisory Committee. The Contingency Review Board which is made up of the Governor, the President Pro Tempore and the Speaker of the House was removed from the 1998 sunset list and their enabling statute was amended to remove them from provisions of the Sunset Law. The State Data Processing and Telecommunications Advisory Committee requested terminated and HB 2228 repeals the committee's enabling statutes and amends statutes that made reference to the committee. The Commission for Teacher Preparation was deleted from the sunset list as their statute was amended in 1995 to remove them from the sunset process. The Group Homes for Developmentally Disabled or Physically Handicapped Persons Advisory Board was deleted from the list for clean-up purposes as they were previously re-created until January, 2000. The Interdisciplinary Council on the Prevention of Juvenile Sex Offenses requested to be sunseted as did the Task Force on Prenatal Substance Abuse. Both of these entities were no longer active.
