2022 RIED Scores

Page 1

A NEW HOME The Research Institute for Economic Development (RIED) has found a new home within The State Chamber Research Foundation (SCRF), but the process for analyzing legislation remains as it has been throughout RIED’s distinguished history. SCRF’s mission is to maximize Oklahoma’s economic competitiveness by educating policymakers and the public about important business-related public policy issues, so it is a natural fit for RIED. SCRF will carry on RIED’s legacy, while refreshing parts of the scoring system to ensure RIED’s relevance in the future.

THE RIED REPORT The RIED Report is to promote economic growth through the evaluation of pro-business legislation considered by the Oklahoma Legislature. RIED creates a profile of each legislator’s individual voting record for bills dealing with business, industry, job creation and economic growth issues deemed important by the private sector. All legislation introduced during the session regarding the issues listed is evaluated. A private sector focus group comprised of representatives in the fields related to the proposed legislation follows the bill through the process and issues a final recommendation. The group evaluates the bills being considered and approves the bills for final scoring. Each legislator is graded with respect to his or her vote on each bill. Absences are not counted against the final score if present for at least one floor vote. Absences during half the voting for scored bills may result in no score for the session. A wide range of reports, graphic illustrations and voting profiles are disseminated across the state based upon each legislator’s voting record. As an initiative of a 501(c)(3), RIED is non-partisan. We do not lobby issues and do not endorse candidates or campaigns. All data is obtained from legislative, government and private sector sources. The material is not intended to be and does not constitute an endorsement of any kind or to be or represent an official source.

2022 SESSION OVERVIEW OVERVIEWThe second session of the 58th Oklaoma Legislature was the first “business as usual” session (i.e., not dominated by COVID-19 and responses to it) since 2019. There were over 2,000 bills and resolutions filed, with 434 making it to the governor’s desk for signature or veto. The hallmarks of the session included indexing unemployment benefits, incentives designed to attract “mega” economic development projects and the defeat of this session’s pharmacy benefits mandates bill. Many pro-growth tax measures were not taken up, but could be considered in a special session later this year, or again in the 2023 regular session.
