Democrat Governor Brad Henry announced today that he will be chairing the opposition to State Question 744 - the ballot questions that seeks to mandate Oklahoma spend the "regional average" for education.
Henry said it was a "painful" decision, but that SQ744 would cause major problems to Oklahoma's state budget. Henry joins a long line of prominent Democrats who oppose SQ744 (including the Democrats gubernatorial nominee, Jari Askins), in addition to Republican officials and major newspapers.
