Fallin Applauds House, Senate JCABs for passing Tax-and-Spend bills


Governor Mary Fallin Applauds House, Senate Budget Committees for Passing Appropriation Bills

OKLAHOMA CITY –  Governor Mary Fallin today commended the House and Senate joint committees on appropriations and budget for their support of House Bill 1035 and other measures dealing with adjusting the current 2018 fiscal year budget: 

“These measures are part of the budget agreement that will help fill our budget hole for the current fiscal year as well as put Oklahoma on a more stable budget path and allow us to address the funding of core services going forward. The budget package provides much-needed pay raises for public school teachers, which I hope will begin a longer term commitment to our educators. It also includes pay raises for Oklahoma’s hard-working state employees as well as tax relief for low-income Oklahomans. I appreciate the support of both committees in approving these vital measures.”
