Governor Kevin Stitt has signed 42 Senate Bills into law, as well as 51 House Bills from the 2019 legislative session. Among the list of approved bills is one that adds vaping to the Tobacco-free Schools Act (SB 33).

Under the law, vaping will be banned “in or on an education facility that offers an early childhood education program or in which children in grades kindergarten through twelve are educated.” The law also makes it illegal to vape in school vehicles and at any school-sponsored or school-sanctioned event or activity.

Governor Stitt signed several other bills into law. One law, Senate Bill 868, opens the way for commercial production of industrial hemp. Senate Bill 967 develops a statewide tracking system for rape kits. House Bill 1071 increases the speed limit on Oklahoma turnpikes from 75 to 80 miles per hour and on certain state highways from 70 to 75 miles per hour.
