Legislative Updates

In our efforts to keep members informed during legislative session, weekly OkACTE emails out an OkACTE Legislative Update to members. We summarize the bills that we believe have the potential to impact our association.


Below is an archive of those weekly updates from the 2021 Legislative session.

Legislative Agenda

OkACTE tracks and monitors bills. These bills can vary from CareerTech education policy, common education policy, education funding, teacher pay raise, tax credits, licensing, Ad Valorem, retirement, state employee pay raise, guns, economic development and much more. The list of OkACTE priorities are set and outlined in our Legislative Agenda by our OkACTE Political Action Committee, which is comprised of two members from every division. Our goal is to have a pulse on every bill that could positively or negatively impact any area of our system.
