OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A coalition dedicated to the welfare of older Oklahomans says the 2013 legislative session was a successful one, with the governor signing nine separate bills the group supported.
The Oklahoma Aging Partnership released its annual legislative report on the 2013 session on Monday. The report highlights the advocacy group's priorities and the votes of legislators on targeted bills.
The report says nine different bills the group endorsed were signed into law, including measures for additional oversight of the seven state-operated veterans' centers and to allow private video surveillance cameras in nursing home rooms. Five other measures the group endorsed stalled in the Legislature, including one bill on grandparental visitation rights and others requiring nursing homes to install carbon monoxide detectors or have emergency power generators.
