Fallin's Veto Gives Legislators Another Chance

The OEA applauds Governor Fallin for her determination in vetoing the abysmal budget passed today. The members of the OEA and those who support public education and core services have stood strong for a plan to move Oklahoma toward a more responsible budget. We implore legislators to get back to work immediately. It's both a gift and a tremendous responsibility to have within your power the ability to address or exacerbate the problems facing our state. Legislators should take this opportunity to resolve our funding crisis without putting the burden on working Oklahomans or ignoring tax windfalls for Big Oil. Oklahoma's students and the future of our state hang in the balance.
