    HB1862, by Rep. Andy Fugate, D-OKlahoma CIty, states every elected official in Oklahoma is subject to recall from office at any time by the qualified electors entitled to vote for a successor if they have held office for at least 12 months. The act sets procedures for an elected official to be recalled starting with qualified electors signing a petition which demands the recall with the electors as the sole and exclusive judges of the legality, reasonableness and sufficiency of the grounds assigned to the recall without review. The act states the petition must be signed by either a number of voters equal or greater than the number of votes cast to elect the officer if the officer received the majority of the votes cast in the election or 50 percent of the votes cast in the preceding general election though the number of votes required under the act cannot be less than 100, also the petition must be circulated for 90 days. The act requires the petition then be filled with the Secretary of the State Election Board to certify the sufficiency of the petition to the Governor, who is required to then set the date for the election, though for the recall elections of county officials the petition is to be filed with the secretary of the county election board. The bill requires the candidate for the recall election meet filing requirements and the official being recalled is not eligible as a candidate and the election for the recall is held at the same time as the recall election and no vote cast in the successor election will be counted if the voter did not also vote for the recall.

It provides what consequences can be incorporated into an agreement that sets time limits for completion and is signed by the offender. It requires restorative practices to be the first consideration to remediate offenses such as interpersonal conflicts, bullying, verbal and physical conflicts, theft, damage to property, class disruption, harassment and cyberbullying. It requires school districts to provide options for restorative practices that are accessible to all students regardless of income level or family resources, such as offering a restoration program in a school setting.
