SB 592: Steep fee for protesting at the state capitol

Would require any group of 100 or more people who engage in a protest at the Oklahoma capitol building to post a $50,000 bond to the Oklahoma Capitol Improvement Authority "to offset the cost of additional security, cleanup and repairs." The bill follows the walkout and multi-day protest by thousands of Oklahoma's teachers at the capitol in April 2018.
