The Oklahoma Legislature today overwhelmingly passed the conference report for HB 3399, the Common Core repeal bill, and it will now go to Governor Mary Fallin’s desk.
The Oklahoma House passed the bill 71 to 17. They also voted 68 to 19 in favor of an emergency clause which means the law would go into effect as soon as the bill is signed. The Oklahoma Senate voted in favor of the bill 31 to 10 with the emergency clause.
Restore Oklahoma Public Education wrote on its Facebook page “Okay Governor Fallin, it’s on you, the people have spoken.”
