OKLAHOMA CITY (Jan. 27, 2017) – A bill prefiled in the Oklahoma House would ensure utility customers could opt out of installing “smart meter” technology on their homes and businesses. Passage of the bill would allow Oklahomans to protect their own privacy, and it would take a step toward blocking a federal program in effect.
Rep. Scott McEachin (R) prefiled House Bill 1435 (HB1435) for introduction during the 2017 legislative session. The legislation would give residential and business utility customers the right to refuse installation of “smart meters.”

Citizen Involvement in the Legislative Process – January 28
The 2016 legislative session begins Monday, February 6, 2016 and we need to be prepared. There will be many bills that require our attention – being trained in how to be effective is necessary for success.
Amanda Teegarden’s Citizen Involvement in the Legislative Process training classes are in-depth working sessions.
1. Firing Government Nannies
2. Citizens Without Representation
3. Thrills & Chills Coming
4. Upcoming Programs
1. Firing Government Nannies. Not long ago we reported that Oklahoma City had banned pedestrians from using a public park. In the face of public outcry, the ban has been lifted. This is the correct outcome, and we applaud OKC for coming to the right decision in this matter of public property.
OK2A has recently updated their website and some of their links have changed. Their feeds were interrupted on OKGrassroots in the transition.
Here are links to some articles that you may have missed or want to keep for reference from October 2016:
No wolves allowed signage (near grazing sheep)… A graphic seen on facebook that had to be shared. For any who think they want gun control. Wolves (and criminals) pay no attention to signage folks. That is the bottom line. Good shepherds will protect the sheep and make sure they can deal with the wolves appropriately.

For Politics and for Survival in Tough Times…
If you have been involved in politics for any length of time whatsoever, you have a vague understanding of what a precinct is and what a county is and that you live in one of each. The precinct is the basic building block of political organization. If you want to have an impact in your area on issues and candidates, you simply must get organized and be a part of a team effort to get information out and make sure the people know when it is important to vote – especially in surprise local special elections and all the ‘little’ bond elections.
[Editor’s Note: This project is important not only for political networking but for survival in tough times too. It is important to know your neighbors and be a part of the solution whatever lies ahead!/sc]

Charlie’s Picks – 2014 Primary Run-Off via facebook here:
House District 61 – KENNY BOB TAPP – This district takes in the Panhandle and even some farther east. OCPAC endorsed Kenny Bob, a fellow I have known for several years now along with the rest of his “salt of the earth” family.
Kenny Bob Tapp said: “I am very honored to receive the endorsement of Sen. Nathan Dahm and I look forward to working with him. Sen. Dahm has championed our rural values from fighting for the life of the unborn, private property rights, and the rights of self-defense of one’s person.”

Conversational in tone and packed with incredible information, this is perhaps Tom Woods finest and most entertaining video presentation. (h/t Charles Burris via email)
