OKLAHOMA CITY – Governor Mary Fallin today commended the House of Representatives and Senate joint committees on appropriations and budget for their support of House Bill 1033XX and other measures dealing with revenue to stabilize the state budget, as well as the House Rules Committee for passing three reform bills:
“I appreciate the support of both budget committees in approving these vital measures. They will help fill our budget hole for the current fiscal year as well as put Oklahoma on a more stable budget path. They also will allow us to address the funding of core services going forward and provide much-needed pay raises for public school teachers.
“The approval of three reform bills by the House Rules Committee will help bring about reforms to ensure public resources are being spent appropriately.”
