The Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board adopts administrative rules to clarify and explain statutory provisions. Before a new rule or an amendment to an existing rule goes into effect, the Board publishes two public notices, a proposal notice and an adoption notice, in the Secretary of State's weekly publication, the Oklahoma Register. This is available on the Secretary of State's web site. Go to www.sos.ok.gov to go directly to the Oklahoma Register.
The proposal serves to notify the public of the Board's interpretation and administration of the statute. During the 30 days following the proposal notice, individuals may comment on the proposed rule.
After reviewing and researching any comments, the Board makes appropriate changes to the proposed text and formally adopts the new rule or rule amendment. The text of the adopted rule is then published in the Oklahoma Register in its final form.
The Rules of the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board are found in the Oklahoma Administrative Code (OAC), Title 515. The Secretary of State's Office maintains the OAC on their web site. Go to www.sos.ok.gov to go directly to the OAC.
