Senate Pro Tem comments on Fallin's State of the State

Oklahoma Senate leader comments on Governor's State of the State address

OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma Senate President Pro Tempore Mike Schulz, R-Altus, released the following comment regarding Governor Mary Fallin's State of the State address:

“The Oklahoma Senate appreciates Governor Fallin’s emphasis on solving our budget issues. The Senate has repeatedly passed responsible revenue measures that would help fix the structural problems in our state budget and pay for important things like a teacher pay raise. But we can’t only focus on revenue. We need to implement budgetary reforms and prioritize our spending to ensure the most efficient use and best return on each tax dollar collected. We look forward to working with the governor and our colleagues in the House on solutions to our budget problems so that we can move Oklahoma in the right direction.”
