By OICA CEO Joe Dorman

The Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy (OICA) is in the process of compiling and publishing a report card on the actions of the Oklahoma Legislature as it pertains to childhood well-being. Our report card delves into policies dealing with foster care issues, criminal justice reform and improvements within systems of government aimed at boosting the state’s child welfare rankings. OICA reviewed more than 20 bills, with 19 of those being signed into law by Governor Fallin. We will have those results available at oica.org by June 1 for your consideration.

We also tracked two additional bills that will not be on the scorecard as they did not advance far enough in the Legislature to receive a final vote.
