May 23, 2020 | PUFP Staff

Governor Kevin Stitt has signed into law a bill that ensures the privacy of Oklahoma citizens and protects their First Amendment right to support causes and the organizations advocating for those causes.

House Bill 3613 prevents state government entities from forcing nonprofits to publicly disclose personal information about their supporters. The legislation received strong bipartisan support, passing the Senate 43-2 and the House 77-13.

Oklahoma is the fifth state to enact citizen privacy protection after Arizona, Mississippi, Utah and West Virginia.
