Oklahoma Governor Decides to Veto Most Recent Tattletale Bill

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin has vetoed the expansion of Oklahoma’s out of state tattletale provision to require reporting to the state and creating penalties that had been found in SB 337 discussed here previously.  Note that she had previously signed legislation imposing more stringent tattletale responsibilities on marketplace and certain other remote sellers (HB 1019 passed as part of the Second Special Session and signed into law on April 10, 2018).

The Oklahoma legislature remains in session and, at least in theory, could override this veto.  We will keep an eye on this legislation to see if there is any further activity in this area.
