Looming Storm Shuts Legislature Down
The Commissioner of Public Safety notified state employees in Canadian, Cleveland, Lincoln, Logan, McClain, Oklahoma and Pottawatomie counties they need not report to work on Wednesday unless they are in a position requiring their presence.
House Speaker Kris Steele cancelled House sessions on Wednesday and Thursday.
“In light of the great distances many House members have to travel when returning to their home districts, it is prudent to allow them to make those drives now before road conditions potentially became icy and dangerous,” said Steele, R-Shawnee. “While this delay is inconvenient, it will not result in any major disruption of the legislative session and we will resume regular activity next Monday.”
