OKLAHOMA CITY – House Rep. Mickey Dollens, D-Oklahoma City, proposed an interim study that would examine the feasibility of utilizing advanced 3D printing technology to construct affordable, sustainable, and customizable homes in Oklahoma to help solve the housing crisis.

“Oklahoma is facing an affordable housing crisis, exacerbated by rising construction costs, supply-chain disruptions, labor shortages, and a demand that exceeds the available supply,” Dollens said. “Oklahomans are feeling the squeeze, and it's time we explore innovative solutions to address these challenges head-on. I believe advanced 3D printing technology has the potential to revolutionize the housing market.”

The interim study would focus on five areas: technology and implementation, benefits and sustainability, regulatory barriers and building codes, tax incentives and financial models, and economic and social impact.

“I urge the Speaker of the House to approve this interim study and support efforts to improve the housing market for the betterment of all Oklahomans,” Dollens said.
