Bill Conflicts Report

The SLC arranged for staff from the Oklahoma Legislature to travel to Little Rock, Arkansas, to learn more about the Bureau of Legislative Research’s (BLR) bill conflicts report, an online tool that identifies when introduced legislation conflicts with existing state law. While seeking out models for their system, BLR staff visited West Virginia in 2016, under the auspices of the SLC’s Legislative Staff Exchange Program, to learn about the state’s nationally recognized code conflict software. Staff members from BLR briefed their Oklahoma counterparts on the creation and main functions of the bill conflicts report and provided a demonstration of the system.
