Senate co-Leader Comments on Henry Pre-K
Senate Co-President Pro Tempore Glenn Coffee, R-Oklahoma City,
made the following statement regarding Gov. Brad Henry’s proposal
to expand pre-K programs to include three-year-olds.
“There are existing state programs that are currently under-funded
or under-utilized. Before committing to the governor’s proposal
for a new government program, the Legislature needs a clearer picture
of how he plans to pay for his proposals for massive spending increases.
Senate Republicans believe we need to take care of our current commitments
to education, transportation and public safety before spending more
money on new government programs,” Coffee said.
