Point of View: Legislation has Oklahoma nonprofits under attack

Point of View: Legislation has Oklahoma nonprofits under attack

Printer-friendly version

House Bill 2250 would limit the way an animal rights charity could solicit funds for programs, functional expenses and advocacy out-of-state, or lobbying and advocacy efforts within the state. The bill is a slippery slope for nonprofits, as one could easily insert another nonprofit type or name into the legislation and target their rights to raise money.

This is troubling, especially at a time when our nonprofits are stepping up to fill gaps that are widening exponentially because of state budget cuts and our local economy. This is a change in law that is unacceptable to the nonprofit sector.
