Legislative/Regulatory
Our advocacy specialists have influence with the Oklahoma State Legislature and the state’s many regulatory agencies, working for the good of the industry and keeping you informed of decisions being made that will affect you.

We also encourage members to join with fellow Oklahoma hoteliers as the OH&LA delegation travels to Capitol Hill for the American Hotel & Lodging Association's Legislative Action Summit (LAS). This annual spring event is the most effective way to voice the strength of the lodging industry to key policymakers in Washington during our visits to Capitol Hill. Our issues are too important to leave to others; it is your responsibility as a leader in our industry to attend. Contact Patti Colley, Executive Vice President for more information.

Don't miss the most important summit in the hotel industry! Your voice matters and we need you there. 
 
"OH&LA provides a voice at the capitol on important issues like the billboard advertising, per diem rates, minimum wage and healthcare. Collectively, we make a larger impact where as an independent operator, our voices may not be heard."
