One of OkACTE's major functions is representing the membership before the legislature. The Executive Director works at the Capitol on a daily basis during the legislative session, tracks legislation, educates legislators on career and technology issues, attends meetings and networks with other education organizations.

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.
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.
