OCPA points out Fallin's hypocrisy on special session

Following Governor Mary Fallin's statement on next week's special session, and her threat to veto any measures that include cuts to state agencies, the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs put the following post up:



On the 15th, Governor Fallin sent this press release out, officially calling for a special session. From the release (also in her executive order): "Fallin recommended lawmakers: [...] Address the need for more consolidation and other efficiencies in all areas of state government."

Yesterday, she completely changed her tune: "Additional cuts to agencies will further harm state services. I will veto a proposal that calls for cuts to state agencies"

Which is it, Governor Fallin? I guess one could say that she was for "right-sizing government" before she was against it.
