Representatives of the Tulsa's Young Professionals group visited Oklahoma's State Capitol Wednesday to meet with lawmakers and lobby for items on the group's legislative agenda. 

Members of the Government Relations Crew, as well as other young professionals and some students, heard from officials and legislators during the morning. They had an opportunity to formally lobby lawmakers in the afternoon. 

The TYPros legislative agenda includes measures to modernize Oklahoma's liquor laws, increased funding for education, changes to the Oklahoma Quality Events Incentive Act, an Oklahoma Complete Streets Act, and a bill to resurrect the task force for developing passenger rail between Tulsa and Oklahoma City.
