County Commissioner, Marven Goodman reports the news on his social media account:
" SB896 just passed on a vote of 26-14. It is now going to the governor's desk for the final step.
SB896 modifies the current requirement that new parties must win 10% of the vote for President or Governor to stay ballot qualified as a recognized political party.
This modification lowers that requirement to 2.5%.
Governor Fallin is expected to sign the bill into law."
