Due to Oklahoma’s unpredictable weather, there are times when the President Pro Tem and the Speaker of the House find it necessary to close offices in the Senate or House because of safety concerns for employees.

If you are unsure whether or not Senate offices will be open, you may call the Senate operator any time at 405-524-0126. If Senate offices are closed or will be closed, the recorded message will give you that information.

In addition, Senate office closures are posted on the home page of the Senate web site at oksenate.gov. If you don’t see a message on the home page, you can assume that Senate offices will be open — even if the Governor’s office has announced closures for other state agencies.

The House Weather Hotline is: 405-557-7300.
