A deadline kills all but one-fifth of 28-hundred bills filed pre-session in this state legislature, but most lobbied for by Tulsa County remain alive. County Director of Governmental Affairs Terry Simonson calls it a good record. He says of the 28 deemed important to Tulsa County, 25 survive. About eight are already signed, and another dozen or so are expected to make it to the Governor’s desk in the next two weeks or so.

A couple of the most important still surviving includes a measure on rapid DNA for the jail and a bill to set up energy-saving zones in the county.
