“Improving oversight of Oklahoma’s seven state-operated veterans centers was a top priority for AARP during the recent legislative session. Senate Bill 629 will give Oklahoma veterans and war heroes better protection and improve their quality of care. We commend Senator Frank Simpson, R-Springer, and Rep. Tommy Hardin, R-Madill, for their efforts to secure passage of this bill and we applaud Governor Fallin for signing it into law. AARP Oklahoma is dedicated to making sure Oklahoma’s most frail and vulnerable residents – among which are many veterans – are protected from neglect and abuse.” – Marjorie Lyons, State President, AARP Oklahoma.
