Since John Sullivan’s bailout vote late in 2008, a riff began between him and the Tulsa Grassroots movement. The first visual example was when John Sullivan, after only 6 months after his bailout vote, was booed and mocked at one of the first Tulsa…

OK State House Consider Procedural Reforms — Let’s Encourage Substantive Change!

House Republicans built on those reforms in 2010 by adding live-streaming of every legislative session, including bookmarking by bill number so the public can view the floor process right from their own computer anywhere in the world.
