Text of measure

The ballot language that Oklahoma voters would have seen read as follows:[1]

This measure establishes, amends, ratifies, renumbers, and/or creates provisions within Titles 10, 21, 30, 42 and 63 of the Oklahoma Statutes. The measure, herein, calls for legislative action and/or languages which will provide a clear definition of the “Best Interests of the Child”, where there is not, currently, a clear set of criteria which establish or amend Oklahoma Statues in such a language as will subject of any individual, State agency, affiliate organization, legal, medical and mental health professional to criminal and/or civil penalties when unnecessary separation of child and family, wrongful termination of parental--rights fraudulent activities or other defined actions/infractions are proven. Furthermore, the measure removes and replaces the “Clear and Convincing Evidence” rule in Juvenile Court proceedings, and establishes a language of law which promotes the importance of Familial bond.[2]
