2017 Legislators Welcome Reception

With the beginning of the 2017 Legislative Session and the approach of Spring, the Oklahoma Academy moves into implementation mode - increasing our efforts to bring sound, consensus driven public policy to Oklahomans across the state and, in turn, encourage and support Oklahomans to get in touch with their legislators.
