The Oklahoma legislature passed H.B. 2760 on May 12 to cut the Oklahoma Affordable Housing Act’s annual funding in half retroactively to January 2020. The vote occurred without opportunity for input from the affordable housing community (See Memo, 5/18). Subsequently, the Oklahoma Coalition for Affordable Housing, an NLIHC state partner, generated hundreds of calls and emails to Governor Stitt’s office urging him to veto the bill. On May 18, the governor’s last day to act on the bill, Governor Stitt vetoed H.B. 2760.
