This email was sent to all precinct chairs in Tulsa County. It should be an interesting meeting on Thursday night. [open post to see letter in its entirety] Here is rule 5b to be aware of in this matter (link provided to full text of OKGOP Rules in full post).
Rule 5(b) Authority and Duties: The Precinct Committee is the supreme Republican Party authority of each precinct, subject to these rules, and the direction and control of official precinct meetings. The Precinct Committee of each precinct is charged with the duty of promoting the welfare and directing the affairs of the Republican Party in its precinct. The Precinct Chairman shall be the executive officer of the precinct delegates to any county convention. The Precinct Chairman is not disqualified to be elected or appointed as a delegate pursuant to these rules. Only the Precinct Committee has the authority to remove any duly elected qualified delegate to the county convention.
That the Oklahoma Republican Party seeks to disallow state licensing agencies, boards, commissions from increasing their income from fines, fees, etc., in order to compensate for cuts in funding from the state legislature.
The rules that govern our State Legislature stifle the concept of a representative government. Any bill can be stopped from even being considered by a single person without any explanation. Any bill can be stopped by the Speaker of the House, Pro Tem of the Senate, or assigned Committee Chairman.

I ask you to reject the current practice and do as the Oklahoma House of Representatives once did. Provide that a members’ bill(s) be heard in committee if the author requests in writing and then provide that same right on the floor if a bill passes committee. And offer or support legislation that will guarantee that every member has the right to have his or her legislation heard.

Pass another law — sure
That’ll solve the problem…
