AARP Oklahoma, the group that has led a fight against continuing Corporation Commission approval of rate hikes and fuel cost adjustment hikes plans a virtual conservation next week to discuss its statewide advocacy work.

During the Thursday, Feb. 9 event that starts at 10 a.m., AARP Oklahoma State Director Sean Voskuhl will outline advocacy efforts at the Capitol and take questions.

AARP Oklahoma’s 2023 advocacy priorities are improving older Oklahomans’ health, wellness and financial security. Voskuhl will talk about the Caring for Caregivers Act which helps Oklahoma’s unpaid family caregivers earn a tax credit.

He will also address the Oklahoma Prosperity Act, which would provide all Oklahomans with an easy-to-access and portable retirement saving program and also share how AARP Oklahoma is fighting for additional protections for vulnerable adults with the Oklahoma Elder Exploitation and Abuse Act.

The Facebook Live event is free and open to the public, and questions are encouraged.
