A national group is seeking volunteers to lobby Oklahoma lawmakers to oppose religiously based measures, which have been on the increase since Republicans gained control of the Legislature four years ago.
Legislation taken up during this year’s Oklahoma legislative session that would have drawn opposition from Secular Coalition for America includes:
Senate Resolution 62
•Reaffirms support for traditional marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
Senate Bill 1433
•The personhood bill, which defines life as beginning at conception.
House Concurrent Resolution 1024
•Declares the official motto of the state to be “Oklahoma — in God We Trust.”
House Bill 2460
•Expands religious refusal laws for health care providers.
