UPDATE: Cherokee Nation weathering ‘shutdown storm’
TULSA (AP) – The Oklahoma Board of Agriculture is set to consider measures Tuesday that would establish regulations for the location of poultry operations.

Most important among the new proposals is one that requires poultry houses with more than 30,000 birds to be at least a quarter-mile (0.4-kilometers) from any home, The Tulsa World reported. Operations with 30,000 or fewer birds would have a 1,000-foot (300-meter) setback.

OKLAHOMA CITY – During the opening days of Oklahoma’s legislative session, a bill has been introduced that would amend the date of “Oklahoma Native American Day,” moving it to the second Monday of each October – the same date as the federal Columbus Day holiday.

House Bill 1104, introduced by State Rep. Mike Osborn, R-Oklahoma City, moves the observation from the third Monday in November. The language establishing the state holiday asks Oklahomans “to devote some portion of Oklahoma Native American Day to commemorate the accomplishments of Oklahoma’s Native Americans,” and suggests teachers observe the day with “appropriate activities.”

The bill has undergone its second reading and been sent to the House Committee on Administrative Rules. If passed, the text calls for the change to be effective on Sept. 1.
