Freedom for the U.S. Flag

Old Glory will wave unfettered throughout Oklahoma if House Bill 2262 becomes law.

The legislation, by Rep. Chuck Hoskin, would prohibit any policy that would restrict a member of a residential association from displaying the U.S. flag at “a reasonable height” of no more than 20 feet on property within the association. The bill expressly refers to an owners association, condominium association, cooperation association or residential real estate management association.

The “Freedom to Display the American Flag Act” breezed through the House of Representatives unopposed, 91-0, and was transmitted to the Senate for consideration.

Hoskin, D-Vinita, is a U.S. Navy veteran.
