ENID, Okla. — A legislative study to examine Northern Oklahoma Resource Center of Enid has been scheduled.

The interim study will be on Thursday, Oct. 17. The chairman of the Oklahoma House Human Services Committee has limited the time of the hearing to two hours, starting at 1 p.m. that day.

The location of the meeting has not been decided, but will be announced about 10 days before the meeting takes place, the legislative assistant for committee Chairman Rep. Pat Ownby said.

Rep. Mike Jackson, R-Enid, requested the study after efforts to delay or stop the facility's closure failed in the most recent legislative session. Jackson has said he was considering asking to hold part of the meeting at NORCE.

Typically, interim studies are held in committee rooms at the state Capitol in Oklahoma City.
