The bill must be approved by the Senate next week and then Mary Fallin must sign it before it becomes law. (as for today)


It is now waiting the Governors signature.


If the Governor signs it, it may not be immediately a law so you need to check the effective date on this when she signs it


If she signs it the new rule will go into effect Nov. 1


It was vetoed
