Senate Leader Comments on Henry Proposal

Statement By Senate President Pro Tempore Mike Morgan

“The Oklahoma’s Promise scholarship program is one of the most valuable assets we have as we seek to increase the number of college graduates in our state. The governor’s plan for dedicating a portion of the income tax to the program is certainly intriguing and I look forward to looking at it more closely, especially their long-term projections.
“I still believe we should strongly consider expanding the income eligibility as I proposed last year. I believe that can be done if we find a way to dedicate revenue to Oklahoma’s Promise that will automatically grow with the program.”
