Sanders Passes First Bill

OKLAHOMA CITY – State Rep. Mike Sanders achieved his first legislative success today when the House voted to approve his House Bill 1467.

“I am very pleased to see my first bill pass easily and with no debate,” Sanders, R-Kingfisher, said. “House Bill 1467 is a common-sense measure that simply adds kindergarten through fourth-grade math teachers to those eligible for professional development through the Oklahoma Commission for Teacher Preparation.”

Professional development is crucial to ensure high education standards in Oklahoma, Sanders said.

“I think that professional development is one of the ways in which we ensure that our teachers are as prepared as they can be to educate our young ones,” Sanders said. “As a new father, I am even more watchful of ways to help enhance Oklahoma’s education system and am proud to see that education is a priority for my colleagues as well.”

House Bill 1467 was approved by a 98-2 vote. It now awaits a hearing in the Senate.
