Oklahoma Drops the Ball on Elder Abuse Bill


Senate Bill 1900 would have increased penalties for abusing the elderly. I would have fully supported this bill; unfortunately, it will not be heard. The chairman of my committee (Criminal Justice and Corrections) and/or the speaker of the House decided that SB 1900 would not be heard.

District 17 state Rep. Brian Renegar: House of Representatives, 2300 N. Lincoln Blvd., Room 326, Oklahoma City, OK, 73105. Capitol office 405-557-7381.
