Signed into law on June 1st, 2000, SB 1406 requires that every application for a license or identification card “made by a male applicant who is at least sixteen (16) but less than twenty-six (26) years of age shall include a statement that by submitting the application, the applicant is consenting to registration with the Selective Service System.” Refusing to sign the statement is grounds for denial of the application.  (Oklahoma Statute 47-6-106(A)(2))  Since 1987, every male must prove compliance with SSS requirements before any state-funded loans or financial aid may be granted.  (Oklahoma Statute 70-699) An interesting Statute—80-24—authorizes the Oklahoma Public Welfare Commission to accept federal money for the purpose of investigating individuals required to register.
