It’s tantamount to an assault on society itself, echoed state Sen. Kyle Loveless. Morrissette (D-Oklahoma City) and Loveless (R-Oklahoma City) made those assertions during a news conference announcing legislative approval of their House Bill 2747, the “Blue Alert Act.” The measure cleared both chambers of the Legislature without a dissenting vote (92-0 in the House, 46-0 in the Senate) and was transmitted to the governor on Wednesday, April 20.
