Victims’ Rights Measure Passes House Committee

A measure to give crime victims the same constitutional standing as the rights of the accused made it out of the House Rules Committee on Tuesday. Senate Joint Resolution 46, or Marsy’s Law, would ask voters to approve a constitutional amendment which would guarantee certain rights for crime victims.

“Marsy’s Law for Oklahoma is proud to celebrate the movement of, constitutionally protected, equal rights for crime victims. We are encouraged by the bipartisan support throughout the legislative process. The passage of Senate Joint Resolution 46 through the House Rules Committee today is a great next step in empowering future victims of crime in Oklahoma to the fullest extent available by law,” said Marsy’s Law for Oklahoma State Director Kim Moyer.

If the House passes SJR 46, voters would decide the issue in 2018.
