UPDATE, 5/20/10: The Tulsa World has a good wrap up of Wednesday’s action in the Senate on this bill.
It looks like an effort to exempt the birth dates of public employees from the Oklahoma Open Records Act has been brought back to life, this time as part of the conference committee report to House Bill 3382. That bill originally dealt with removing the existing Open Records Act exemption to copies of Oklahoma Highway Patrol dashboard camera footage.
Things like this happen all the time in the closing days of the legislative session. The original birth date bill, Senate Bill 1753, died last month. But as they say at the Capitol, nothing’s ever dead until they bang the gavel for sine die.
As well as Rep. Randy Terrill, R-Moore, several other lawmakers signed off on the conference committee report changes to HB 3382:
- Rep. Rex Duncan, R-Sand Springs
- Rep. Mark McCullough, R-Sapulpa
- Rep. Mike Christian, R-Oklahoma City
- Rep. Joe Dorman, D-Rush Springs
