Legislation Filed, Nichols Begins Last Session in OK House

Red Flag Laws, Affordable Housing Credit Among Democrat’s Final Push


TULSA, OK – Rep. Monroe Nichols (D-Tulsa), candidate for Tulsa Mayor, filed legislation recently for his eighth and final legislative session in the Oklahoma House of Representatives. The Tulsa Democrat, continuing work from previous sessions, filed bills to address public safety, education funding, workers rights and affordable housing.


“The issues plaguing Oklahoma communities are not going to wait for someone else to act,” Nichols said. “Every year the legislature comes into session, and we have an opportunity to make decisions that will positively impact the citizens we serve. These bills are filed, many with bipartisan support, because working together and investing in ideas and outcomes that put people over politics should always be our priority.”


Legislation for the 2024 legislative session:

  • HB3243: Increases the affordable tax credit to $15 million until 2029.

  • HB3244: Creates a regional education partnership grant administered by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.
