Oklahoma House Passes Bill to Move Presidential Primary to March

On Monday, the Oklahoma House passed one of the four bills before it that would, if enacted, shift the Sooner state's presidential primary from the first Tuesday in February to the first Tuesday in March. By a vote of 91Y-6N, the state House passed HB 1614. The Senate passed the companion to this House bill on March 1 and a subsequent bill (SB 602) last week. The passage of this bill leaves the two Senate bills and one remaining House bill in the House while HB 1614 moves on to the Senate where its companion was passed unanimously.
