While Oklahoma senators and representatives technically adjourned two or three weeks ahead of their typical schedule this year, the state’s 56th Legislature actually spent 12 of the past 15 months in some sort of session.

From January through April of this year, the Legislature was in its second special session, simultaneously meeting for regular session beginning in February.

The resultant lawmaking generated high drama, big changes, major news and a great amount of clarity about just how the Sooner State governs itself.

To catch up on what happened, how and why, please consider examining our entire #okleg tag page.
