During this regular meeting, the RESOLUTION TO PROTECT OKLAHOMA’S EDUCATION SYSTEM from Common Core was voted on and adopted by the Committee. This Resolution directs, in part, the Republican State House and Senate Committee Chairs receiving bills concerning the repeal or delay of CCSS and/or any part pertaining thereto (including but not limited to the analysis of CCSS and any part of the NCLB waiver requirements) to hear these bills and allow a Committee vote and The State Committee of the Oklahoma Republican Party directs the State House and Senate Republican Floor Leaders to hear any bills concerning CCSS and/or any part pertaining thereto that pass out of Committee, and that these bills be slated for hearing and vote by Legislators, so honest debate can occur and Oklahoma citizens are represented by the vote of their elected legislator.
