Oklahoma Bill Aimed to Curb Scientology's Drug Rehab Passes House Committee - 2013-04-02
Robert "Murph" Murphy We just spoke with Robert Murphy, whose daughter Stacy died last July at Scientology's flagship drug rehab center in Oklahoma, known as Narconon Arrowhead. Murphy had just come out of a legislative meeting in Oklahoma City to tell us that the House's Public Health Committee had passed an amended Senate Bill which should put the Narconon center in some jeopardy.
"It's a good day," Murphy told us.
The bill's sponsors told us they were hoping to fend off any amendments so it could quickly get House approval and then get to Oklahoma's governor, Mary Fallin, for signing into law. But the bill was amended today, which means it will, after House approval, go back to the state Senate, where it originated.
