Potential task force could be developed to oversee OK Corporation Commission

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KSWO)- A bill that has passed the House and a Senate committee could add a task force to oversee the Oklahoma Corporation Commission.

The task force would consist of Oklahoma legislators and representatives of the oil and gas industry, utilities and other industries that the corporation regulates.

Members of the state chamber say they have been working with the authors of the bill. They add that it's important for the bill to pass in order to help the economy.

"The issue here is so many of our jobs, so much of the economy goes right through the Corporation Commission which is why it's one of our highest priorities," said Mike Jackson with the Oklahoma State Chamber.

Opponents of the bill have questioned if it is necessary, saying there would be a lack of public input to the task force.
