    Sponsored by Reps. Kern, Fisher, Hulbert, Blackwell, Ritze and Sens. Shortey and Stanislawski; and signed into law in 2013 by Governor Mary Fallin; HB1060 (see also SB951) states that, “Any court, arbitration, tribunal, or administrative agency ruling or decision shall violate the public policy of this state and be void and unenforceable if the court, arbitration, tribunal, or administrative agency bases its rulings or decisions in the matter at issue in whole or in part on foreign law that would not grant the parties affected by the ruling or decision the same fundamental liberties, rights, and privileges granted under the U.S. and Oklahoma Constitutions, including but not limited to due process, freedom of religion, speech, or press, and any right of privacy or marriage as specifically defined by the Constitution of this state.” HB1060 would prevent the use and application of U.N. laws or Sharia Law in state court decisions.

The measure declares that the regulation of hazardous waste, air pollution, water pollution, oil, natural gas, petroleum and petroleum products are not subject to federal laws or regulation. It allows state environmental agencies to work with federal environmental agencies. It prohibits state agencies from enforcing federal environmental laws and regulations.
