OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The Oklahoma House passes legislation that would create an online registry for anyone convicted of making or distributing methamphetamine.
The bill would track meth manufacturers and distributors and require county officials to send names and addresses of anyone convicted and sentenced of manufacturing and distributing meth to state authorities.
Similar to a sex offender registration program operated by the state, people listed on the meth registry could have their names removed if they have a clean record for seven years.
The bill, which passed 96-to-0, is patterned after a law enacted in Tennessee.
It now goes to the state Senate for action.
The number of meth labs in the state dropped dramatically following legislation passed two years ago that limits sales of cold medicines containing a chemical used in making the illegal drug.
