Legislative Advocacy – AONP

Legislative Advocacy

The 1st Session of the 58th Legislature adjourned Sine Die, at 5:00 pm, May 28, 2021.

When the Oklahoma Legislature is in session, the AONP legislative team, led by Executive Director, Benny Vanatta, monitors events at the Capitol every day; meeting with legislators and scrutinizing legislation. We fight legislation that would harm NP practice and create and promote bills that advance NP practice in Oklahoma.

During the interim, from June through January, we maintain our vigil by working with legislators and staff on interim studies. Due to the short legislative session, interim studies are necessary, in-depth research of important issues that are conducted by committees to aid the legislators in the upcoming session that begins in February. If you have questions or need information about legislation or the legislative process contact AONP’s Executive Director, Benny Vanatta at  benny@npofoklahoma.com
