The Oklahoma City Diet

You may have heard recently of Oklahoma City's new diet. Mick Cornett, mayor of Oklahoma City, wants the city to lose 1 million pounds in 2008. We want to know what you think?

Fire Safety in Oklahoma

Every year we are reminded that we live in a state with some of the most volatile weather in the country. Inevitably there will be times, like last year, that we have 21 straight days of rain. Still other times we'll go a month without seeing any precipitation and the entire state will be in a fire watch.

One idea, aimed at reducing fire danger, is being proposed by a state lawmaker. The legislation he has proposed would call for cigarette paper that burns out easily to be for every cigarette sold in Oklahoma. We want to know what you think of this idea and others that would affect public safety.

Nuclear Power

The state of Oklahoma, like many other states, is evaluating different options when discussing how best to produce power in the future.

Many argue that it is safer than it was, and is cleaner than fossil fuels. We want to know what you think. Send us your ideas on Nuclear Energy and on Energy Policies today!

Amending the Parole Process

Over the course of this year, we at 100 Ideas have received a wide variety of ideas. One recurring idea was to amend the parole process. Many complained that it was an antiquated system, or that it was wasteful, or unjust. Most solutions ranged from removing gubernatorial oversight to the process to adjusting punishments to fit their crimes. We want to know what you think! Send us your ideas on the parole process and on criminal justice today!
