Rep. Jon Echols said he plans to look at the strength of current Oklahoma roofing code, both by looking at existing regulations and how they are enforced, during an interim study.
“We’re going to bring in all parties, regulatory parties, the roofers, and any interested parties, and talk a little bit about what’s going on in the state and out of state with roofers following Oklahoma roofing code,” said Echols (R-Oklahoma City).
Senators requested a total of 55 interim studies by Friday’s deadline for submitting their proposals. ECapitol reports the proposed studies cover a variety of different issues.
Sen. Kim David, R-Wagoner, for example, requested a study of the certification process for dialysis centers, Interim Study Request 2013S-22.
Sen. Rob Johnson, R-Yukon, has requested a study of the taxes and youth access to e-cigarettes. Johnson was the author of one bill related to the issue during the legislative session and contributed language concerning the products for another bill, neither of which was approved.
