Gov. Stitt's sixth State of the State address kicks off Oklahoma's 2024 legislative session
Oklahoma lawmakers start the 2024 regular legislative session this week. It all kicks off around noon, starting with Gov. Kevin Stitt’s annual State of the State Address.
Stitt is expected to recap his biggest wins since last year and push his latest slate of priorities for the legislature.
He will likely call for tax cuts again, ask for help from legislators in resolving recent disagreements with tribal nations, and plead for education reforms.
While the governor's stated goals are more of a personal wishlist than an outline for the session, much of what he wants will be considered within the more than 5,000 bills lawmakers have filed.
Per the state constitution, lawmakers have until the end of May to pass the legislation they consider most vital to Oklahomans. Only a fraction of proposed bills become law.
