House Majority Leader Mike Sanders (R-Kingfisher) today passed a bill in the Oklahoma House of Representatives that would strengthen the role of victims’ impact panels in helping to stop driving under the influence (DUI) offenses in Oklahoma and to reduce the number of repeat offenders.
Representatives from all eight of the fire departments in Kingfisher County were honored to host Sen. Darcy Jech and Rep. Mike Sanders at the Okarche Fire Station. Sen. Jech and Rep. Sanders were attending to present an honorary check representative of operational funds received by the departments from the Oklahoma Depart-ment of Agriculture, Forestry division. The funds are to be used for the day-to-day expenses of operating the fire departments. The monies distributed are accounted for annually to the rural fire coordinator. Each department received $4,641.52, an increase of about 10% from last year due to legislators increasing the funding.
Last week, Congressman Frank Lucas, R-Cheyenne, joined 20 of his House colleagues in cosponsoring H.R. 4881- the Real MEAT Act, a bipartisan bill addressing deceptive labeling practices in alternative protein products.
